This Homegrown Brand Is Giving the Traditional Barong and Terno a Fresh Twist

Think: Maria Clara for modern times.


You may have dropped by the department store at some point, looking for a terno to wear to an office function or a wedding. While there are a lot of traditional cuts and styles to choose from, there are only a few pieces that look current and can easily be incorporated to one's regular wardrobe. It's no wonder then that these beautiful creations make for incredibly expensive investments that often end up kept in cabinets.



Enter Tygie, a Valenzuela-based company that specializes in traditional Pinoy clothing. Making use of traditional materials, designs, cuts, and embellishments, Tygie has managed to give a modern twist to feminine barong and terno pieces that can easily be worn on a regular day. 


Off to a presentation? Bring out the barong. Leave your cotton button-down home and make a statement with this pick!


Be super extra with embroidered skirts. Highlight a simple tank top and a pair of sneakers with a luxurious skirt.


Upgrade your smart-casual look with butterfly-sleeved bolero jackets.


Tygie is available at Kultura Filipino stores in SM malls nationwide. For more information, visit Tygie's Facebook page.
