Pia Wurtzbach puts the spotlight on Filipino fashion as she posed for a feature on Vogue Italia.
On Instagram, the Miss Universe 2015 shared a series of photos taken from the shoot composed of an all-Filipino team, including stylist Victor Baguilat Jr. and photographer MJ Suayan.
With the theme “Indigenous Futurism,” they aimed to look at the Filipino culture "of what could have been" and "what it could still be" in the future.
Pia modeled clothing made by weavers from Lih'han Di Immipugo of Kiangan, Ifugao.
In the caption, Pia hopes that her photos did more than just inspire and actually encourage Filipinos to support Filipino artistry.
Part of her caption reads, "I hope this doesn’t end with us just feeling inspired. It’s a start though. I hope we will always support each other’s artistry and creativity. I hope we can learn to preserve and continue traditions so we can weave them into our future."
"It is with pride that I can wear my country’s stories as pieces of art. I hope every Filipino does too! 💙🇵🇭" she wrote.
