Hontiveros wears modern baro’t saya for SONA 2022

Senator Risa Hontiveros has donned a modern baro’t saya dress for President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr.’s first State of the Nation Address (SONA) on Monday.




As reported by GMA News' Mav Gonzales, the outfit is made from Aklan Piña, the details hand-embroidered in Lumban, Laguna.

The outfit is designed by Joel Acebuche, whose pieces have been worn by the senator at previous events such as the SONA 2021 and the proclamation of winning senators in May.

Hontiveros completed her look with a handwoven Tikog bag from Samar and pumps made in Marikina.

This afternoon at the Batasang Pambansa Complex in Quezon City, Marcos is set to unveil his plans for the country for the next 12 months. —Nika Roque/JCB, GMA News
