Aside from Parul Shah’s impressive showing in the recently- concluded Miss Grand International 2015 Pageant held in Bangkok, Thailand, there are two other Pinoys who distinguished themselves in the three- year old international beauty competition.
| Parul Glitters & Glistens Like Gold|
The first one is designer Edwin Uy who designed the glittering Muslim Maranao Princess Costume that won for Parul Shah the Best National Costume Award. The golden Princess Urduja- inspired costume set off Parul’s tanned complexion beautifully.
The other designer is Leo Almodal whose fabulous and elegant creation for Miss Japan won for her the Best in Evening Gown award.
While the award is primarily for how the candidate wore the gown, still the design & the craftsmanship made the difference and made the candidate from the Land of the Rising Sun stand out for sartorial perfection.
|Japan is a joy to watch in her gown|
| Philippines & Japan with Costa Rica, Sri Lanka & India|
