In a post on his StyleBible.ph blog, Rajo Laurel revealed that he would be designing the uniforms of the Philippine contingent for the 2012 London Olympics. Laurel wrote: "I have great news! I feel very grateful and honored to tell all of you that I will be designing and making the clothes for the opening ceremonies for the Philippine Team in the !  We have a 30-person contingent of both male and female athletes, coaches and delegates! I can't tell you how big of an honor this is for me!"

 

Laurel further revealed: "My inspiration is the Philippine national costume, our very own barong Tagalog.  I believe in its simplicity and elegance.  I decided to use the colors black, gold and mocha for the ensemble. The embroidery will feature a modern ’palay’ inspired design with dark cobalt and blue threads symbolizing good fortune.  The main accessory is a salakot, which I have gilded in gold leaf and hopefully will catch the light as they enter the Olympic arena."
