Ati-Atihan

Philippine Fashion midterm:

I had to make a wall hanging/wall decor obviously representing the Philippines. I wanted something with strong colors and immediately thought of Philippine festivals. I was inspired by the Ati-Atihan that takes place in my parents’ hometown of Kalibo, Aklan. It occurs every January on the third Sunday. It consists of tribal dances, a ton of music, indigenous costumes, and parades along the street. My parents have told me how fun Ati-Atihan is, hopefully I can go next year!

After researching, I made my pattern, traced it on to my muslin, painted it, then glued the gold trimming. Boom.
