Lesley Cheam, winner of Miss Universe Malaysia 2022, will be wearing an eco-friendly costume made from recycled plastic waste and inspired by Mount Kinabalu on 23 January at the Miss Universe pageant in New Orleans, Louisiana in the United States! 😍
Hatta Dolmat, a well-known local designer who created the stunning dress stated that he was inspired by the highest peak in Borneo and Malaysia, Mount Kinabalu, Malaysia’s most remarkable landmarks.
He explains that the outfit consists of a headpiece and dress made of silver and grey, that are meant to resemble granite boulders on the side of the mountain. A cape with similar embellishment resembles the mountain’s slope.
Every component of the costume is made from recycled plastics, in line with Hatta’s environmental-friendly message.
