British Designers Henshall Way Couture collaborate to create Miss Englands stunning look at the 71st Miss World

1 month ago

HENSHALL WAY COUTURE

The collaboration between renowned international Couture Designers, Scott Henshall and Eric Way has resulted in an exquisite evening gown that is nothing short of breathtaking. Designed exclusively for Miss England’s appearance at the prestigious Miss World Festival for the final catwalk at the Jio World Convention Centre in Mumbai India,  this gown marks a historic moment as the first joint creation of these two creative geniuses.

Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, the gown is a harmonious blend of Scott Henshall’s expertise in opulent designs and Eric Way’s mastery in creating luxurious diamond-studded pieces. This gown follows in the footsteps of their previous groundbreaking creations, the world’s most expensive Diamond Dress by Scott and the equally remarkable Diamond Jacket by Eric.

The gown, intended to grace Miss England’s radiant presence, is fashioned from the finest White Duchess silk, exuding an aura of grace and sophistication. Embellished with Swarovski Crystals, it sparkles and catches the light, embodying the designers’ shared affinity for brilliance.

The silhouette of the gown is an embodiment of timeless elegance. It features a fitted bodice that accentuates Miss England’s slender form, with an alluring asymmetric neckline that seamlessly transitions into an off-the-shoulder style. The delicate and fully beaded transparent tulle sleeve adds a touch of ethereal charm, giving the gown a delicate balance between sensuality and refinement.

The gown’s design extends to a corset-like fitted waistline that gracefully merges into a long, fitted skirt. A daring thigh-high slit not only lends a contemporary edge but also accentuates Miss England’s statuesque figure, leaving an indelible impression as she moves. The cascading voluminous skirt envelops her hips and waist, forming a captivating frame for this figure-hugging masterpiece.

True to the designers’ signatures, Swarovski crystal accents are thoughtfully placed throughout the gown, further enhancing its allure. The intricate beading adds depth and dimension to the gown, making it a true work of art that embodies the designers’ shared love for lavish details.

In this collaborative creation, Scott Henshall and Eric Way have woven their unique artistic visions into a single masterpiece that celebrates beauty, luxury, and innovation. As Miss England graces the Miss World Beauty Pageant stage in this gown, she not only represents her nation’s beauty but also showcases the unparalleled artistry of these two maestros in the world of haute couture.

Jessica reached the final 8 on the Miss World stage wearing this gorgeous gown from the 112 participating countries and now proudly holds the Miss World Europe title.

Following the contest Jessica said ” Im ecstatic to have won the Miss World Europe title as it means I get to travel more with the Miss World team but I also have the flexibility to start my career in aerospace engineering.”

Director of Miss England Angie Beasley said ” I would like to thank both Eric & Scott for all the time and effort that went in to creating Jessica’s final look on the Miss World stage. Im excited to see more of their joint creations”
