Thai Night to welcome Miss Universe 2018 contestants
Thai silk was the star of the Thai Night gala dinner and fashion show to officially welcome Miss Universe 2018 contestants and showcase Thai culture, fashion design, textile and food at Dusit Thani hotel, Bangkok on the evening of 5 December 2018.
Ninety-four international beauty queens at this year’s Miss Universe pageant walked the grand runway in gorgeous gowns created by 19 Thai designers from the hand-woven Mutmee silk of the Foundation for the Promotion of Supplementary Occupations and Related Technique of Her Majesty Queen Sirikit of Thailand. The gowns came in different colour schemes according to each day of the week: yellow, pink, green, orange, blue, purple and red.
For this special occasion, the pageant was also honoured by the support of Her Royal Highness Princess Sirivannavari Nariratana whose custom designs from her Sirivannavari brand were worn by Miss Universe 2017 Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters and Miss Universe Thailand 2018 Sophida Kanchanarin.
