    Carrie Underwood Wears Oliver Tolentino Eco-Friendly Dress on Idol

    http://www.philstar.com/entertainmen...iver-tolentino




    MANILA, Philippines - American Idol Season 4 winner Carrie Under- wood wore a piña gown by Hollywood-based Filipino designer Oliver Tolentino during her recent guesting on American Idol. The peach eco piña Venus-cut gown with a hand-draped bodice featuring a raw finished edge and flow- ing skirt accented with a side slit.
    It wasn’t the first time a dress by Tolentino was worn on Idol. He also dressed Jessica Sanchez for last year’s Final 3 show. However, it was the first time Philippine fabrics was worn in a live US TV show.

    I think that it was made of pinaple leaves is more interesting than who the designer was. Does anyone think some thread was made by grinding or pulling the leaves?

    ooooh nice!
    fabric made out of pineapple leaves is called Piña (pronounced as pinya meaning pinapple) cloth...
    our national costume (well at least for the men) most of the time are made of this cloth...

    I found this video of how they weave the cloth out of pinapple leaves: Weaving Piña Cloth - YouTube

    So glad that Carrie has wore something so Filipino!
    And it's eco-friendly too!
