Wow! 'The Broken Marriage Vow' Shows Us A Fully Filipino Costume Design
We take a peek into the show’s wardrobe before the release!
As we wait for the release of the much-anticipated new ABS-CBN series The Broken Marriage Vow, we take a peek into the show’s wardrobe featuring fully Filipino-made pieces and looks. The show is an international franchise originally by BBC’s Doctor Foster and the global phenomenon South Korea’s The World of The Married. For the Philippine version, the cast and crew embrace our heritage and roots in a best show of Filipino hand-crafted pieces and products.
“Matagal ko na inisip na makagawa ng isang serye kung saan gumagamit ng local designs from local designers,” says Connie Macatuno, the show’s director and costume and design head. Together with the show’s fashion and wardrobe team Jill Sara and Patricia Coronado, the show came up with the concept and theme of Urban Pinoy where they mix global and Filipino luxury brands to create an entirely modern look that pushes the conversation and their message. With this, they aim to “showcase a different way of wearing our Filipino clothes, our roots, our culture.”
To give life to the pieces the cast includes Jodi Sta. Maria who will portray Dr. Jill Ilustre (Dr. Gemma Foster in the original show). TBMV follows the story of a married couple whose family and relationship are tested with the discovery of her husband’s affair. Zanjoe Marudo plays David Ilustre (Simon Foster), husband of Dr. Jill; Sue Ramirez plays the mistress Lexy Lucero and Zaijan Jaranilla plays Jill and David’s son.
“The idea of being together in one project where it’s entirely local and showcasing original work is a thing that excited all of us,” Director Connie shares hoping that one day we get into a moment wear we wear the barong and the piña on a daily basis.
Most of the pieces were handmade by our country’s skilled weavers and artisans all over the pieces. Our Filipino designers also shared their original work to be used for the show. And apart from the clothes, the theme also pours into shoes and accessories, creating an experience that’s entirely new on Philippine television and devoting to the show’s sartorial message.
We definitely can’t wait to see everything come to life soon! See more of the details of the costume design in the video below!
