Susan Roces admits she is sentimental to a fault. She has transformed a house in Lipa, Batangas, into a storehouse for her “old things,” which includes “lots of gowns by Pitoy Moreno, some by Ramon Valera,” costumes, knickknacks and memorabilia she has gathered since the ’50s.

“They call me basurera because I keep everything,” said the 70-year-old actress who is famous for films from Sampaguita Pictures like “Mga Ligaw na Bulaklak,” “Prinsesang Gusgusin,” “Perlas ng Silangan.” She recently starred in the soap “Babaeng Hampaslupa” on TV5.

Her wedding gown, a beaded number by Pitoy Moreno, is still in good condition. Her daughter Grace tried it on for her wedding, but it was too small for her, since Roces was a svelte 110-pound bride then.

These now-vintage treasures are dry-cleaned and properly stored, but for her residential home, Roces takes care of her clothes by using Champion detergent—a brand she has been endorsing since 2007.
