One of the most popular Philippine Dress “Maria Clara” 

Traditional gown worn by women in the Philippines. This Filipino dress takes its name from Maria Clara, the mestiza protagonist of the national epic novel Noli Me Tangere, penned in 1890 by Filipino national hero Jose Rizal.

Maria Clara symbolizes the purity and innocence of a sheltered native woman during the time of Spanish occupation 🙂
