You know that something is official when the Miss Universe Organization makes an official announcement about it. So the entry of Mouawad as the designer and maker of the next Miss Universe crown to replace the Mikimoto is already set in stone with the first of three creations debuting in the next 68th Miss Universe Pageant. The second and third head adornments will be unveiled during Miss USA 2020 and Miss Teen USA 2020.
Just a brief backgrounder on Mouawad:
Mouawad is a privately held Swiss and Emirati luxury goods, vertically integrated company that makes High Jewelry, and retail company that sources diamonds and gemstones, designs, manufacturers, and sells jewelry collections, objects of art, and luxury watches. The firm has headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland, with a Middle East headquarters at Jumeirah Lakes Towers in Dubai. Founded in 1891 in Beirut, Lebanon by David Mouawad, the firm is now led by 4th generation co-guardians Fred Mouawad, Alain Mouawad and Pascal Mouawad. The firm’s jewelry and watch design and manufacturing divisions are located in Switzerland and Asia Pacific.
So I’m pretty sure Miss Universe Catriona Gray will drop by the Dubai HQs of Mouawad during her visit to the UAE this week, and on that specific day when her itinerary was not made public.
