The terno's renaissance is stronger than ever before.

When the first-ever TernoCon was held in 2018, it sparked renewed interest in the design of a piece of Filipiniana attire that is often associated with formal events or school costumes. Conceptualized by Bench and the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP), TernoCon was as an effort to preserve the traditional craftsmanship of the terno, while propelling it into the future through modern interpretations. That goal was certainly achieved at the second TernoCon, which took place last night at the CCP Main Theatre. 

Before the runway show, where the competition's 13 finalists were to present their three-piece collections, guests roved around the reception area flaunting their very best terno ensembles—and they were definitely equal parts 'traditional' and 'contemporary.' There was an array of beaded numbers, prints and patterns, as well as avant garde designs that pushed the boundaries of what a modern terno could be.

Here are all our favorite looks that might inspire you to embrace the terno as well, no matter what the occasion may be:
