Evening Gown for Miss Universe Morocco 2021 Kawtar Benhalima

The gown is a majestic, Haute Couture, fashion forward interpretation and a glorifying tribute to the Moroccan Caftan , the most famous and iconic Moroccan traditional dress.
My inspiration was ‘The Colours of Morocco’, which I myself was fascinated by when I first visited #Morocco . The literal vivid colours we see in the markets across the country – of spices, fabrics, art, and Moroccan traditional fashion, as well as the metaphoric representation of the Moroccans and spirit –  the abundance of beauty, joy, passion to life, the love, and the vivid warm hearts of the Moroccan people.
The Jewellery I designed to complement the dress and overall styling is with a prominent Khmissa – the iconic significant cultural emblem recognised and used as a sign of protection throughout history, to provide defence against evil eye, as well as represent blessings, power & strength.
Thank you National Director Saad Bennani & the entire Miss Universe Morocco team for allowing my dream to come true with your belief and support 🙏🏻
Shukran bza’af ♥️🇲🇦🇮🇱♥️
