Tourism Secretary Berna Romulo-Puyat wanted to clarify one thing.
She was never required to wear Filipino-made clothing even as the secretary of the Department of Tourism.
“I’ve been proudly wearing Filipino labels for more than a decade as you can see in my picture taken in 2010. I was wearing a silk cocoon barong top🇵🇭,” Puyat said.
And she wears local not because she wants to represent her position well, it’s really more because she loves local!
“Supporting Filipino creativity and craftsmanship with every collection. Our fashion is as comfortable as it is beautiful🇵🇭,” she proudly exclaimed.
