Its pageant season in the 242, and Bahamians from the various islands and cays are hoping the girl representing their island will win! Will it be Miss Grand Bahamas, Miss New Providence, or Miss Crystal Cay? September 13th is the day the two individual Queens will be crowned Miss World Bahamas and Miss Universe Bahamas. I can’t wait…
However, before the big night, there are several small competitions where the girls compete for points towards their overall win. Last night, Friday September 4th (Beyonce’s Bday) was the Evening Gown and Talent Competition. I was excited to be invited to the event and go to get my life in Evening Gowns and Costumes…. but not before giving a little Life myself!
Last night was the first time I attended a Miss Bahamas pageant event. So I wanted to wear an outfit that was stylish and complimented my body, comfortable because I didn’t know what to expect and more importantly, represented Bahamians!
I knew exactly what I wanted to wear. A piece designed by a Bahamian fashion designer! And so said, so done.
Anthonique Farquharson, CEO and Fashion Designer of POJ Designs and Apparel provided me with a dress from her premier women’s apparel collection fresh off the runaway that I fell in love with when I first saw it debut at Fashion 4 Foundation fashion show in June. The Jen dress is a mini dress with a subtle high and low effect towards the bottom, and its a mix of ankara prints. This dress is detailed with Anthonique’s signature “So Fly” sleeves. See how I styled this designer piece.
Here’s what I wore:
