Filipinos Got Angry With The Organizers Of Asia Model Festival The Reason Why Will Also Get You Angry.

This is a bit unfair for the Filipinos since the other models who represented their nation were spectacular, we can say those traditional costume that they wore was an epic just like Japan, Korea, India and almost all of the nations except for Philippines and Nepal. The netizens say that the 3 models of represent the traditional Filipino costume were just like attending to the party who wore a simple gown.

The three models look like not Filipinos and you can't even recognize them if they're representing the Philippines if they're not holding a Philippine's flag. Netizens also say that, could be they've done this on purpose to make noise or to make the video viral and to gain popularity.  The costumes that the model wore in the fashion show are clearly not the Philippines' traditional costume.

Philippines' Traditional Costume:
Barong Tagalog for Men

Barong Tagalog, the official national costume of Filipino men,
originated from the northern part of the Philippines, and is originally
made of jusi or pineapple cloth called “pina” (woven from pineapple leaves).
It is worn over a Chinese collarless shirt called camisa de Chino.
It exhibits the loose, long lines of its Chinese sources, the airy
tropical appearance of Indo-Malay costume, the elongated effect of Hindu dressing,
and the ornamental restraint of European men’s clothing.
Today, barong tagalong can come from different materials and different colors.
It is usually used for formal occasion and meetings.
