Cape Town – Former Miss South Africa Shudufhadzo Musida on Monday dazzled the Miss World competition in Puerto Rico with her ‘Designer of the World gown’ designed by South African Warrick Gautier.
According to Channel24, the Miss World pageant hosted a Top Model Competition in which competitors were given the opportunity to showcase local designers from their native countries.
Musida wore a fitted silhouette gown in cherry red crepe designed by local designer Gautier to highlight Miss South Africa as a powerful and confident woman.
She took to Instagram to share some lovely photos of the inspiring gown.
“When we started discussing ideas around what I wanted my Designer of the World gown to be I knew that I wanted to incorporate one specific thing…’Buhle’. The Miss South Africa crown that I wore with so much pride and with an immense sense of responsibility knowing what the crown represented, not only to myself but also for so many young girls who see the crown for what it truly means. Passion, purpose, responsibility and service. I want this dress to represent our dreams and that they have so much value, not matter where you come from.”
“@warrickgautier made this vision come to life in the most beautiful way by hand beading this gown with the design found in the crown. Thank you Warrick for making this dream come true, I’m so proud to wear this garment proudly made in South Africa with so much love and dedication from you and your team of artisans,” Musida wrote in an Instagram post.
