Modern Maria Clara

Since I mentioned Spanish colonial era clothes yesterday, here is another modern interpretation of the Maria Clara—a style of women's dress now considered formalwear named after the fiancé of the main protagonist of Jose Rizal's novel "Noli Me Tangere." Maria Clara would have loved the elaborate lace and pattern, but I doubt if she would have been comfortable with Eddie Castro's slim fit and starkly graphic colors.

The spanish costumes have some similarities with the provencal ones...
And, what about the male costumes ?

That dress is very nice looking. Has lots of color and style. Didn't the Wife of Marcos wear one of these at one time or another?
