Official royal blue gown of Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach

The actual royal blue gown is designed by Albert Andrada. He is a Filipino fashion designer, known locally as one of the most respected artists in the fashion industry. As a designer, royal couture designs are just one of his expertise to showcase the essence of formality for those who are wearing his dresses during formal occasions in both local and international affairs.

As for the design of the gown, it is a semi-serpentine cut design with big folding designs below the knee. The back portion is designed to have  a pair of  inverted shiny v-striped lines, which creates a contrast with the plain royal blue design in front. The v-shaped design in front makes the gown look more elegant and emphasizes the overall figure of Pia. The pearly embedded design along the sides of the gown represents the pearls because the Philippines is the pearl of the orient.

Albert designed the gown for Pia Wurtzbach because he was chosen as the official designer for the Philippine representative for the Miss Universe pageant in December 2015.

He also designed Pia's national costume, which is a Filipiniana inspired dress with a Capiz inspired headdress with a traditional fan props.

Albert Andrada's design was among the chosen few who applied for the official designers offered by the Binibining Pilipinas Charities Incorporated (BPCI).

He replaced Alfredo Barazza, who was the former official designer for all Filipina delegates to various international beauty pageant competitions.

Barazza was replaced due to controversies about his design, which was criticized to be failing to comply with the standards of Filipino culture.

Pia Wurtzbach actually was the one who chose the color of the gown. She was inspired by the waters surrounding the Philippine archipelago. The royal blue gown epitomizes the queenly aura of Pia Wurtzbach as she wears it like a goddess while on stage.

However, both Pia and Andrada were not expecting that the gown exactly matched the Miss Universe crown. The blue colored stones from the crown make the gown look more elegant, emphasizing the essence of being a royalty.

Andrada can further expand his influence to other designers around the world because his ideas and creations generates Filipino influence to international celebrities who wants to be inspired by his ideas and products.
