Miss Earth Sweden 2015 - National Costume

Maria Taipaleenmäki will represent Sweden in the upcoming Miss Earth pageant in Vienna on December 5th, wearing the National Costume inspired by Lucia - to bring the urgent message and stand for Light & Hope, especially on such dark days like we are experiencing around the world - with so much violence, hate, corruption, crime, terror, war, discrimination, inequality, injustice, sorrow & pain.

For Centuries, the winter-light festival, Lucia, has been celebrated on December 13th, the darkest time of the year. Lucia comes to the world to enlighten and spread out compassion amongst human beings.
I wish it would inspire people to choose light over darkness, to choose love & compassion, over hate & violence.
My deepest gratitude goes to my wonderful, talented & committed team -

Inspired by the orginal & historic design of King Gustav III, which sa first introduced in 1778. Together with the Fashion Design students of Drottning Blanka high school, we recycled 30 meters of last year´s festival´s flags and transformed them into a Royal Cape.

Deepest gratitude to The Gothenburg Culture Festival ( Göteborgs Kulturkalas) for the generous support & providing the platform to present the design as part of a National Culture Festival in Sweden!
