Fiji’s traditional costume and dance will be showcased live worldwide when Miss World contestants take the centre stage in the finals of the Miss World pageant on August 18 in Ordos, inner Mongolia, China.

The costume and dance to be worn and performed by Miss Fiji Koini Vakaloloma with the backing of Miss World Fiji national director Andhy Blake and Pasifika Voices Meke performers was one of the selected items from the 117 participating countries chosen to open the ‘dances of the world’ segment during the world finale.

Blake said this segment of the contest allows carefully selected contestants to display the excitement that showcases the uniqueness of their countries.

And he said with Fiji’s entry, the whole world will take notice of what we can offer on the biggest creative platform.

Miss Fiji was also one of eight specially invited contestants by the Mongolian government to tour the city of Ordos alongside Miss New Zealand who was the only other contestant from the Pacific.

Fiji’s participation has been received well with special appointments to meet with Julia Morley the chairman of Miss World who is excited about the impact of the Miss World brand and the outcome it will place on Fiji as a tourism and trade destination.

The 117 contestants are now in Shanghai, China for filming, touring and fast track competitions followed by a Best Designer Dress competition in which local designer, Fumaru Fatiaki will be up for the top award if his garment is selected winner.
