Scheduled to go on from April 26 to May 2, 2013, the festival will also feature weavers’ trade expos showcasing indigenous designs of Philippines, such as batik, abel and piña, as well as international fabrics used in the making of costumes and accessories.


The World Costume Festival 2013 is a showcase of international costume designs for live performances on festivals, events, theatre and multimedia. The event is in conjunction with the Annual International Meeting of the Organization of International Scenographers Theater Architechts and Technicians (OISTAT) and Costume Design Group (CDG).

The festival will have a competition for Outstanding Design Costume. “The winner will receive a Golden Kneeling Carabao trophy, the highest honor of the festival.”

There will also be a body-painting competition—whose winner will have a chance to represent the Philippines in the World Body Painting Showdown in Austria in July.

WCF 2013 will be part of the city’s annual Viva Vigan Binatbatan Festival of the Arts.

A Unesco World Heritage Site for its Spanish colonial architecture, Vigan boasts of cobblestone streets where the festival’s costume parade will unfold.
