The recently unveiled National Costume for Malaysia for the Mrs Malaysia World was recorded as the Largest Wau Costume in the country.
Called the Puteri Wau Bulan, the costume was modelled by reigning Mrs Malaysia World, Vanishaantini MM Pellayrameas.
It was designed by Sarawakian designer, Saran Anak Lagong and measures 3.8m in height and 4.8m in width.
The costume weighs 10kg in total and was inspired by the traditional floral batik patterns comprising Malaysia’s very own hibiscus, orchids, pagoda, Ixora, Bougainvillea, roses, and frangipani flowers.
Vanishaa will be wearing the stunning masterpiece for the Mrs World 2024 pageant, which will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada, later this month.
Many have since expressed how beautiful the costume was, aside from making history on a national platform.
