Miss Universe South Africa 2020, Natasha Joubert has launched Destiny Designed.

It is a project to empower fashion designers through her own passion for entrepreneurship and design.

The beauty queen who will be will be representing South Africa at the Miss Universe pageant later this year has invited young designers to submit more information on their design label and explain how their business has been affected by Covid-19.

The young hopeful told Daily Sun that: “I am passionate about entrepreneurship. I started my own company in 2016 as circumstances placed me in a position where I needed to become self-sufficient. I was also modelling and I started making my own garments as I couldn’t afford to buy an extensive wardrobe.

“Young girls started to admire my handmade garments and asked if I could start making outfits for them as well, and Natalia Jefferys was born! I now want to help other designers on their journey.”

“Destiny Designed aims to empower fellow South African designers through showcasing their fashion in a virtual space while using the Miss Universe South Africa platform,” she said.

CEO of the Miss South Africa Organisation, Stephanie Weil said it’s imperative now, more than ever, for South Africans to support local fashion designers.

“The Miss South Africa Organisation is delighted to be able to showcase our rich design talent on a worldwide platform while also helping South African design talent on their own entrepreneurial journey,” she said.

Ten entrants will be selected to make two garments each and have them modelled by former Miss South Africa title holders and finalists, as well as special guest models, in a virtual fundraiser fashion show that is scheduled to take place on Saturday, April 10.

Natalia Jefferys’ garments will also be showcased in this spectacular online runway show.

Viewers will pay a minimal subscription fee on misssa.live to watch the show, with all funds donated to the 10 designers.

After the show, the designers’ garments will be auctioned off online with the proceeds from each item sold going to the respective designers.
