Last Saturday, March 3, 2018, the Kia Theater was filled of supporters for their candidates who are vying for the titles of the Binibining Pilipinas 2018 road to the crown.
At 8 p.m., music filled the room with the opening of the Jag Fashion Show, and was followed by the National Costume portion, which is one of the awards that are up for grabs. The photos of all the candidates in their National Costume here.
