Cagayan de Oro fashion icon Melody “Mimi” Parrel-Pimentel has been picked to design one of President-elect Rodrigo Duterte’s barongs.  Whether it will be used for his historic oath-taking ceremony on June 30, 2016 in Malacañang remains to be seen since there are also other barongs by Davao-based designers. But Mimi is optimistic that Duterte will choose her design which is made of Mindanao silk for the oath-taking.

Below are photos of Mimi taking measurements from President-elect Duterte.
