Rajo Laurel posts a National Costume design for the Miss Universe Pageant
Can you picture our candidates rocking this outfit?

The dress, Laurel described in the caption, is inspired by the Ati-Atihan Festival in Aklan. We can discern some feather accents on the sketch-quite a common motif in National Costumes for the Miss Universe Pageant-plus intricate geometric patterns on what looks like a long-sleeved jumpsuit. That décolletage is sure to grab attention.
Do you think this is good enough, Spotters?
The design posted by Laurel can be found in blogs like Missosology and Starmometer, crediting OPBM. This yellow ensemble was visualized for Venus Raj, while a Northern Philippines-inspired piece was conseptualized for Shamcey Supsup:
