"I am rooted, standing tall, and strong from the City in the clouds, Baguio. Being a UNESCO creative city, she is wearing a crafted filipiniana made by the talented artists of Baguio. The dress is adorned with tassels made from bamboo. Bamboo is known for being the City's protector, located in the mountainous region prone to landslides. The bamboo plant is what holds the soil firm and steady. Mrs. Baguio proudly wears this medium as a symbol of the resiliency of the Baguio people," Aliba said.
