I know that not everyone are Igorots. But those Igorots are mostly in Northern Luzon, you see there are 7 different Cordillera ethnic groups or more. But my question is before Hindu and Arab Muslim came in the Philippines or in Southeast Asia then what they look like before that? Are they wearing the same clothing? these are the other 2 different religion that was introduced by the immigrants before the spaniards & americans came in.

Who knows what they looked like before the Hindu empires. That's almost pre-history for the Philippines.

Other type of Filipino Traditional Dress.

Quote:
The Maria Clara gown is a traditional gown worn by women in the Philippines. This Filipino dress takes its name from María Clara, the mestiza protagonist of the national epic Noli Me Tangere, penned in 1890 by Filipino national hero José Rizal. It has been connected to the Maria Clara character because of her traits: delicate, feminine, self-assured, and with a sense of identity. The Maria Clara outfit is the only Philippine national attire that is named after a literary figure.[1]

The Maria Clara dress originated from the conventional baro't saya of early Filipino women. The baro't saya consists of a loose, long-sleeved blouse, which is then worn over a wide, ankle-length skirt.[

Maria Clara Wedding Gown,circa.1986 The attire is composed of four pieces, namely the camisa, the saya, the pañuelo (a scarf, also spelled panuelo), and the tapis. The camisa is a collarless chemise whose hem is at the waist, and is made from flimsy, translucent fabrics such as pineapple fiber and jusi. The sleeves of the camisa are similar to the so-called "angel wings", or shaped like bells that have cuffs. The pañuelo is a stiff covering for the neck, which acts as an accent piece because of embellishments added to it. The purpose of the pañuelo is related to modesty, used to cover the low-necked camisa'. The saya is a skirt shaped like a bubble with a length that begins from the waist reaching the floor. These are usually comprised either of single or double sheets, called "panels" or dos panos (lit. "two panels/layers"); some examples are made out of seven gores or siete cuchillos (lit. "seven knives"). The tapis is a knee-length over-skirt that hugs the hips. Tapis designs may be plain, and is usually made of opaque fabrics such as muslin and the madras cloth, and also is used for the purposes of modesty as it keeps the lower torso from showing due to the thinness of the saya.

A more modern version of this dress is referred to as a "terno".
SONA (State of the Nation Address), I hope Filipinos will
wear our traditional dress more not just during national day.

But that is my opinion....
Why? I always enjoy seeing Indian women in saris. It's something a bit different, adds a bit of novelty. I think it's kind of great that most Indian women still wear saris when the rest of the world is just wearing western clothing.

I saw a video in Bali in 1940 and the ladies walk around without top clothing. But some are already wearing top clothing too, I guess it was just recently introduced.


Bali in 1940, before the Japanese occupation - YouTube
Bali, 1940 before Japanese Occupation.
It used to be OK for Javanese and Balinese ladies to be topless, but obviously Europeans had the idea of it berng uncivilized. Javanese used to be as topless as the Balinese before the arrival of Islam, as of today many old Balinese ladies and some young ones in the countryside are still practicing it. But by majority it has been seen as too inappropriate and especially with rapid modernization.
