21st Philippine Travel Mart - Bituin ng Kasuotang Filipino

The recently concluded 21st Philippine Travel Mart (September 3-5, 2010) in Megamall proved to be a success! Many people (local and foreign) trooped in Mega for the 3 day event. Those who had the patience to wait and line up were able to buy a roundtrip plane tickets for as low as P88. Unfortunately, I'm not one of them... (Juan got tired from the many booths his mom went to)

What's nice about Travel Mart is that they always showcase not just Philippine destinations but Filipino talents and ingenuity as well.

These gowns were made by upcoming fashion designers, represented by college students from different schools all over the Philippines.

The beautiful girls were serenaded by the very talented host, Miguel Capistrano III, Microtel's Assistant Director for Sales & Marketing

The Grand Winner (she got the loudest applaud from the crowd).

1st Runner-up, her gown was made by her Mother.

2nd Runner up. She was my bet for being the prettiest and most graceful.
