2. The Philippine Orchid coords

A vision in monochromatic pink, Rabiya’s 15th look stems from the lovely flamingo and Rose Grape flower, a variation of the Philippine orchid. According to Rabiya's stylists, designer Ushi Sato chose the flamingo because it represents freedom, balance, and elegance reflecting an open heart. On the other hand, references taken from the Philippine Orchid can be seen in the details.

3. The Iloilo River set

Representing Rabiya’s hometown is this midnight blue set inspired by the Iloilo River’s scenery. Designed by Ruffy Evangelista, the coord set is embellished with gold thread and mimics the city light’s reflection on the river at night.

The square neck bra top is complemented by an asymmetrical skirt with ruffled hemline and an adorable bow on one side. As Rabiya walks, its flowy midi skirt unveils a thigh-high slit. But apart from the visual referemce, an important detail of the outfit is its material which is actually made with Iloilo’s hand-woven indigenous fabric, Hablon.

4. The Manila Sunset coords

Rabiya Mateo once said that the color of a phenomenal woman is red, “red is power and I am red. Perfectly encapsulating that idea is this uniquely cut ensemble by Claiza Bihasa Uy. She wanted the dress to show Rabiya’s “warmth and beauty.” Portraying the striking Manila Sunset and the glow of red candles in church, the dress turns Rabiya as a symbol of light, power, and fearlessness. The skin-baring top goes well with its matching maxi skirt. It gracefully accentuates Rabiya’s figure what with its asymmetrical cut and flowy fabric.

5. Pink suit coords

Rabiya looks sensational in this contemporary feminine set created by Van Bantiling. It just goes to show that formal attire can be expressive and unconventional, too. We're eyeing the set's deep v-neckline framed with a two-toned pink and orange collar that accentuates the top! Contrasting the formality most blazers bring is the striking cutouts in the underbust. Further pushing the boundaries is an asymmetrical waist band letting her belly button peak through. Displaying Rabiya’s toned physique is the string wrap around that made the set edgier especially with the flare pants detailed with orange panels on both sides.
