All it took was an old woven scarf and some tweaks to make it new.

Quezon City Councilor Kate Galang-Coseteng made sure to follow the simple Filipiniana motif prescribed by Mayor Joy Belmonte for her state of the city address.

Without much cost, the politiko dug up her old malong and styled it across her body to keep up with the theme, instead of having another gown tailored for the occasion.

“Since its a dying industry in mindanao, I refused to cut it and wore it as I have done before, to wear a ton of safety pins to keep it on! Glad I found an old modern top to complement it!!!,” Coseteng said proudly as she shared her OOTD.
