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 only a few pieces that look current and can easily be incorporated to one's regular wardrobe. This makes these beautiful creations incredibly expensive investments that are too often only kept in cabinets.
Enter Tygie, a Valenzuela-based company that specializes in traditional Pinoy clothing. Still keeping with traditional materials, designs, cuts, and embelishments, it has managed to give a modern twist to feminine barong and terno pieces that can easily be worn on a regular day.
