Inspired by the glamour of a glittering former first lady, this terno is an embodiment of how she moved the dark & powerful decade of Philippine History with her style. Imelda Marcos popularized the Philippine national costume with butterfly sleeves and stylized column serpentina skirts. Each public appearance was a work of art. She was keenly aware of Filipino cultural constructions of the lady as the icon of national tradition, and used these insights to achieve her nationalista goals. Everyone secretly loved her fashion sense.
And oh god the shoes. We went to see the infamous wardrobe when i was young and I was fascinated by the disco shoes encased on a pedestal. There were rows of shelves with endless shoe styles, I was in heaven and I thought it was a shoe library. Frivolity sparked in my little heart.
Casa del Shai pays tribute to the lady with the Imelda Terno. A creation of lavish draped silks flowing into a column, adorned with sculpted lace butterfly sleeves. Akin to a dipped paintbrush, this terno is ink-stained at the hems with burnt Spanish lace.
The Imelda Terno radiates her beauty at the Casa Del Shai Deco in Ivory and Verdant. Wrap yourselves with royalty now.
