Excited to present my National Costume for Miss Universe Japan 2021 Juri Watanabe,
In honour of the 70th anniversary of diplomatic relationship between Japan & Israel, i am honoured to design Miss Universe Japan’s National Costume for the 70th Miss Universe competition.
The costume is a celebration of the incredible Japanese harajuku fashion culture , and is saluting Eurovision Song Contest winner & Israeli Pop Star Netta Barzilai – who honoured the Japanese culture wearing a kimono on the world’s stage, and is a true advocate for acceptance & diversity!
This elaborate dazzling costume depicts the National seal of Japan, the national flag of Japan implied in the sleeves, and the iconic maneki-neko cat, to bring good luck to Miss Universe Japan 👸🏻 🇯🇵 💝 😻
