Asean Post Featuring National Costumes
In connection with the selected theme for this year's ASEAN Post
Stamp Release, the Philippine Postal Corporation is issuing stamps
featuring the Philippines' National Costume.
One's National costume is the
source of identity, nationalism, and power. It defines of who we are
as a Filipino, it is a representation of our traditions, our
history. Fashion evolves through the years, and we are constantly
bombarded by stylized versions of national costumes. Our national
costume is one of the most common themes we see in different media.
The inspiration for this project is the luxurious lines of fashion
illustration and the warm romantic ambiance of our Kundiman songs.
This stamp features a man and a woman, wearing the national costume
of the Philippines, the Barong Tagalog and the Baro't saya,
respectively. The ASEAN Post logo appears at the lower left corner
of this design.
