Before the Miss Universe 2022 finalists vie for the crown on Saturday night, the contestants donned their national costumes to represent their respective nations in a competition.

On April 26, Tuesday evening, the Miss Universe Philippines Organization unveiled the official photos of the 32 candidates wearing their extravagant costumes and elaborate headpieces, taken in the cobblestoned streets of Vigan, Ilocos Sur.

"The Philippine textile industry is an integral part of our uniquely beautiful history," the organization wrote. "It represents the rich stories and craftsmanship of different tribes and communities throughout the archipelago. It is part of the fabric of our national identity."

They said that aside from promoting tourism, they aim to put into spotlight the craftsmanship of Filipinos in textiles and weavings.

"These are treasures we can't afford to lose. This is an industry we want to continue and help strengthen," they said.

MUP added that the theme for this year's National Costume presentation is habi or weaving, adding that it should be found in 30% of thier finalists' costumes.

"Let's celebrate Filipino creativity and artistry in this year’s National Costume Presentation!"
