Fashion Show of Miss Universe Pageant set to dazzle

Jul '09
The Sheraton Nassau Beach Resort will be host venue for what will be a dazzling spectacle when 88 of the most beautiful women in the world take to the catwalk as models in the Fashion Show of the Miss Universe Pageant, scheduled for Wednesday, 12th August.

The unique feature of this fashion show is that the contestants of the 58th Miss Universe Pageant, converging from Albania to Zambia, will be outfitted by three outstanding Bahamian designers, utilizing the locally-manufactured fabrics of Androsia and Bahama Hand Prints for their creations.

Owen Bethel, Chairman of the Host Planning Committee and Pageant Coordinator, commented that “Not only is this significant as the first time that The Bahamas is hosting the Miss Universe Pageant, but also because the fashion show will feature another aspect of the islands' creativity and culture as displayed in fashion. This will certainly have the potential of catapulting the local fashion industry into the international spotlight. It is important for other designers and novices to take advantage of this and continue to build on the opportunity.”

The three designers chosen after an open call are: Rachel Turnquest-Garcia of Rachel's Boutique, Basheva Eve of La Maison de Besh, and Sabrina Francis of SE'B Fashions. Also contributing to the night of elegance and splendor will be noted Bahamian designer Brynda Knowles, whose mission is to design the evening's outfits for the reigning Miss Universe, Dayana Mendoza. Ms. Mendoza will share the stage as co-host of the event with Mr. Charles Sealey. The newly-crowned Miss Universe will receive an outfit created by prominent Bahamian designer Jeff St. John, of the House of St. John, which she will wear at her press briefing on the morning after her crowning. She will also receive a specially-crafted bag from internationally-acclaimed Harl Taylor BAG.

The fashion show is being organized and produced by Mode Îles Ltd., producers of the award-winning Islands of the World Fashion Week. Immediately following the fashion show the contestants will view and participate in a junkanoo rush-out along the Cable Beach Strip.
