And now added to the list is Miss Universe Philippines 2nd Runner Up Miss Michelle Theresa Gumabao who wears a Cordilleran-inspired traditional dress made of Paracelis weave and designed by Fashion Designer Erjohn Dela Serna. 

The traditional weaving of the Ga'dang community in Paracelis, Mt. Province involves an intricate beadwork that makes the garment unique from the others.

Weavers from the community takes a lot of time to produce one and the work is too tedious. For instance, a bakwat, or belt can take up to more than one week of weaving.

A school in the community called Paracelis School of Living Tradition was established to preserve and pass on the traditional Ga'dang cloth weaving and unleash the creativity of the youth while incorporating in them the values of hard work, patience, and love of culture.
