Pres. Rody Duterte & Wife Honeylet to Wear Marawi-Inspired Creations During SONA 2017


President Rody Duterte and his common-law wife Honeylet Avanceña are expected to wear Marawi-inspired creations created by fashion designers from Chardin Davao, during the highly anticipated State of the Nation (SONA) 2017.


Bonnie Adaza stated in an interview with news media outlet that the President's barong will be simple with touches of the okkil or okir pattern, which is distinguished by flowing geometric forms found in Maranao art works.

Adaza was quoted as saying "Yung barong na dinesign ko is may personal hand bead lang talaga. It is a tribute to Marawi." "Yung may okkil or okir-inspired na embroidery which is may geometrical pattern siya na design at saka mga vines." Adaza stated.

The fashion designer added further that "Actually, same pa rin siya na concept doon sa mga previous barongs na ginawa ko for the President to make it more simple and same materials din." Adaza added.

President Duterte's wife Honeylet even suggested to the designers that they can recycle the barong worn by the President during the ASEAN summit but the fashion designer recommended having the President wear a new one instead.

The popular fashion designer from Davao, Bonnie Adaza also revealed that Ma'am Honeylet Avanceña will wear the same green Filipiniana gown she wore at the ASEAN Summit, but this time, with a hand-painted Maranao accent on the shirt.

Adaza's fellow Chardin Davao designer, Aris Lee Escarilla also added that "Okir kasi yung signature usually nilalagay nila like parang naka-curve siya sa bean outside sa mga bahay ng mga sultan at mga datu. 'Yung mga naka-protrude sa labas, kahoy na design."

Escarilla also noted that Ma'am Honeylet adviced her that they should not make a costume for her in the second SONA of Pres. Duterte but they just need to re-design her previous gown she used during the ASEAN Summit.
