The Stories Behind The Ternocon KKK 2024 Collections

Read about Jaggy Glarino, Jesus Lloren, and Cary Santiago's Ternocon collections.

It was a night of art, fashion, and culture! Bench, together with SM Supermalls and the Cultural Center of the Philippines, brought forth a fresh narrative to Filipino cultural celebrations. 


Ternocon 2024 celebrated Philippine Independence Day with the theme: Kasarinlan, Kultura, at Kasuotan featuring designers Jojie Lloren, Cary Santiago, and Jaggy Glarino representing Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.

Jaggy Glarino opened the show with “Lemlunay”, a collection that drew inspiration from the rich cultural heritage of Mindanao. His avant-garde and non-conformist approach to design were showcased in his nine ternos and three barongs. We were deeply enamored by his gilded and beaded looks.


Jojie Lloren was the second person to present his collection. His twelve exquisite ternos tell the story of his connection to his mother and the motherland. Entitled “A Lullaby For My Mother”, Jojie made a promise to preserve and elevate Filipino culture through his ornate garbs. 


Cary Santiago closed the show with a vivid celebration of Filipino pride through the colors of the Philippine flag and iconic national symbols. “Ikonograpiya” is composed of Cary’s signature intricate and sculptural designs. His monochramatic designs commanded the room!
