Marian Rivera supports locally-made products through solely wearing Pinoy fashion wear!

GMA Network’s Primetime Queen Marian Rivera confessed that she no longer wears or buys imported branded clothes and signature shoes and bags because she finally shifted to wearing locally-made products. 

And she says she’s passing along the habits to her adorable kids Zia and Ziggy.

During her MarianRiveraxBeauteDermHome contract renewal press conference recently, Marian proudly admitted that she is now patronizing solely Pinoy fashion products. 

“Wala, zero. Pati ang mga anak ko puro local [suot].” she stresses.  She adds that she’s over with that phase when she’s into imported luxury brands.

“Siguro dumadating din sa mga tao na nahihilig ka at pag may konti kang pambili e, nabubulag ka sa mga ganoong pagkakataon. 

“Inisip ko sa sarili ko na ‘bakit hindi ako mag-suot ng isang bagay na alam kong makakatulong ako sa ikauunlad ng Pilipinas...kahit sa maliit na pamamaraan?.’

Siguro ’yong pagsusuot ko ng locals is a way of showing them na sinusupport ko sila. Gawang-Pinoy para mas maging kabuluhan ’yong pagsusuot ko ng damit.”

Marian says her love affair with locally-made fashion started when she endorsed Kultura, SM’s specialty store for locally-crafted products. “Siguro namulat ’yong mata ko ng inendorso ko ang Kultura. Nakita ko kung gaano kaganda at galing ng Pinoy sa paggawa talaga ng iba’t-ibang klaseng produkto. ’Yon talaga ’yon eh gawang pinoy, suportahan natin.”

Thus, you’ll never catch Marian these days in clothes that aren't made from jusi or batik and other native fabrics and prints. Even her shoes and bags are well-curated pieces from local shops and artists.

And as for Marian’s imported branded clothes and signature bags, she reveals that she already sold them all.

Wala na siya, wala na...binenta ko tapos binili ko ng mga katutubong damit. Lahat ’yon.

When asked if sometimes she still feels like buying branded stuff, she said, “Wala na, siguro pag may pagkakataon na may konting pambili, nakabili ka ng medyo branded pero sabi ko ‘What for?’. Ngayon mas makabuluhan ang suot ko kasi gawang Pinoy siya.”

Marian’s modern katutubo clothes don’t come cheap, too, mind you. But her stance is that at least she’s spending her money that helps Pinoy artists, designers, and workers.
