Doña Victorina was a fictional character in Jose Rizal’s 19th century revolutionary novel, Noli Me Tangere. Married for convenience to a Spaniard, Don Tiburcio de Espadaña, she was depicted to be a Kastilain wannabe, influential and snobbish yet strong in her wiles. The Donya Victorina Terno is a rendition of how colourful her life is, in royal blue Piña with embroidered rosettes on her skirts that run up to her shoulder. The gown is cut low on the back, draping fluidly down as it is tied together with a big satin bow. The butterfly sleeves are sculpted with sheer alencon lace as well as those on the skirt. Filipiniana glows with the colours of spring as roses bloom at the Casa Del Shai.
