Our very own, Elly Ewbank, was on the panel of judges for the terno gown–which is the evening gown division of the Filipina pageant.  (with her granddaughter) A brief description of a terno gown is…


It has been called a masterpiece, a classic, a national treasure. Terno: from the Spanish word meaning “to match.” It was the handiwork of not just one couturier but a coming together of the innovations of many. The Filipino terno alludes to the matching of blouse and skirt, joined at the waist to form a one-piece creation, with both bodice and skirt made of the same material.

Elly’s Formal Wear also sponsored the Second Runner Up trophy and Terri Ewbank, Elly’s daughter presented the trophy award to Jayna Shaffer, Miss Kauai Filipina. Congratulations!!

Here are the gorgeous young ladies that were competing in the Saturday, July 24, 2010 pageant at the Hyatt Regency Ka’anapali Resort.
