We have just wrapped the search for Miss Universe Australia 2017 and part of this coverage we worked with some amazing QLD finalists and the amazing Begitta to develop our Universal Reign feature shoot which is set for release in the next week, but for now, have a read and some BTS snaps.
Custom designed gowns created meticulously over months to suit your individuality wholeheartedly. Each piece beautiful designed with a cohesion in mind that connects each item yet sets each unique style apart from the others. A piece of exclusive wearable art that supports each woman to feel confident, strong and poised to compete.
This is what the Queensland competitors for Miss Universe Australia 2017 were honoured to receive from Begitta.
From involvement with individual competitors in 2012, 2014 and 2015 to being the sole Gown Sponsor for Queensland in 2016 and 2017, Begitta and her self-titled fashion label has created over 70 custom designed dresses in the past two years for the Miss Universe QLD women along with working one-on-one with twelve national finalists including five top-ten finalists over this time..
An experience like this has lead Begitta to not only dress the Queensland ladies but to be involved as a judge in the State Finals in 2016 and 2017. Taking her contribution from behind the dress to behind the scenes.
“Backstage is full of excitement and nervous tension,” said Begitta. “It’s a crazy time for the girls, but they are still always smiling.”
After months of designing and creating custom gowns, Begitta dons a dress herself and walks the red carpet into the Gala and Crowning evening.
“After the incredible amount of work that goes into designing five custom gowns and working with a client for up to 6 months, it’s so wonderful to enjoy the ride and glamour of the event,” said Begitta.
Glamour, which will become a part of Begitta’s newest label collection. This year’s pieces will become key in Begitta’s collection ‘MERMAIDIA’.
A line inspired by the sirens of the sea, the oceans depth and the serenity that surrounds you below the water’s surface.
With ‘MERMAIDIA’ currently in the works, Begitta has bigger fish to fry with an upcoming announcement set to take Begitta the label to brand new shores. Watch this space.
