Another designer that is worth exploring for your next fabulous attire come this Santacruzan is Patis Tesoro. Tesoro became known as one of the premier designer of modern Filipiniana outfits, by using native fibers and other locally-sourced materials to craft intricately designed gowns. Her intricate embroidery and detailed patchwork is what propelled her to being one of the household names in fashion design in the country.
