#MetroStyleWatch: Filipiniana Chic On The kaLIKHAsan Ball Red Carpet

Last night marked a milestone in the local society scene—the first ever kaLIKHAsan Ball took place for the benefit of Bantay Kalikasan's 20th anniversary! It was a special event wherein Metrowear Icon designer Wynn Wynn Ong showcased her "Sa Dagat at Bundok" collection, along with special performances by Sofia Zobel-Elizalde's Steps Dance Project and RAMA. All was held for a good cause—funds raised will benefit Bantay Kalikasan's on-going campaign for the environment and the socio-economic upliftment of communities through eco-tourism and agriculture.

At the momentuous occasion, guests were encouraged to come in their best Filipiniana attire, however they chose to interpret the theme, and boy did they step out in the chicest ensembles! Some of the guests chose to stay the classic terno route, while others chose to interpret the theme via modern silhouettes but sticking to indigenous fabrics. Surely, there was no shortage of local love to go around the evening! Scroll to see the beautiful outfits we spotted on the red carpet:
