DOT-ARMM Participates Miss Universe pre-event
Bedazzling! That is the way to contextualize the women of Miss Universe 2017, on their impeccably contoured dresses from local fabrics and weaves of Mindanao, particularly in ARMM Region.
The DOT ARMM participated in the recently concluded Mindanao Tapestry show, a pre-event for the upcoming Miss Universe Pageant 2016/2017 last January 19, 2017 at the SMX convention Davao City. As innovated by the Department, our local fabrics were given chances to be featured and as highlight of the night such as the Maguindanaon inaul, landap of the Maranaos, and the pis syabit of Sulu province. Tourism ARMM is resolute in participating in this prestigious event for the promotion of our traditional cultural weaves as this will surely help us to boost tourism in the Region. Not only that, it will also bring spotlight to the business of our local weavers whose livelihood is in need of more exposures. The Region is looking forward for more recognition and patronizing from people across the world as this will improve the economical and tourism development of ARMM. Its about bringing ARMM to the world!
