In celebration of ASEAN Month, Museo ng Muntinlupa and the National Commission for Culture and the Arts launched “Woven Identities: Clothing Traditions of ASEAN” at the Grand Lobby of Museo ng Muntinlupa on August 29. A travelling exhibition, this is the first time the exhibition will be displayed in a museum setting.

Muntinlupa Mayor Jaime Fresnedi graced the opening ceremony of the ASEAN Costume Exhibition and invited city residents to witness the exhibit.

“We invite every Muntinlupeño to come visit the new exhibit and immerse in Southeast Asia’s rich heritage and culture as depicted in textiles of the region,” Fresnedi said. The local exec added that Museo ng Muntinlupa aims to bring history, culture, and the arts closer to the community.

Officials attending the ceremony were DFA Asec. Eduardo Meñez, Philippine Textile Council execs Louie Locsin (wife of DFA Sec. Ted Locsin) and Ruby Diaz Roa, Manila for Kids founder Ligaya Gasataya, City Administrator Engr. Allan Cachuela, City Councilors Alexson Diaz, Louie Arciaga, Paty Boncayao, Cornelio Martinez, Mamerto Sevilla Jr., Arlene Hilapo, Ting Niefes, and leaders from Zonta Alabang and United Pentecostal Church.

The ASEAN costume exhibit will run until October 10. The Museum is open from Tuesday to Sunday from 10:00am-4:00pm and entrance is free.

In Southeast Asia, traditional attire has played a significant societal role. Depicting tribal affiliation, social status, and religion, traditional attire not only serves as ornamentation but also embodies the development and heritage of a nation and transforms an individual person into a bearer of tradition.

The exhibit, serves as an introduction to the countries that belong to the Association of Southeast Asian Nations. It showcases clothing traditions of each ASEAN country in hopes of highlighting not only the remarkable craftsmanship and unique identity of each culture, but to further demonstrate the underlying commonalities between them. The Museo ng Muntinlupa is a unique venue as it is proud to be the heritage center of Southern Metro Manila.

As the newest city museum in Metro Manila, Museo ng Muntinlupa brings history, culture, and the arts to Southern Metro Manila. A 3,000 square meter space, it is complete with interactive galleries; contemporary art space; a research center and meeting spaces; and a state-of-the-art 200-seater theater for performances and conferences.
