Miss Universe Malaysia National Costume 2011 and Sponsors 2012

Miss Universe Malaysia campaign has began preparations for a very exciting September and November. Guess what? The 1st time that the Gala Night of MUM 2012 event would be telecast LIVE!  Besides, the debut of ‘BeautyCamp: The Search for Miss Universe Malaysia 2012’ will be on a local television channel too.

“This is the first time that any country in South East Asia has used a reality television show as
part of the selection process for a Miss Universe candidate and it is definitely the first time
any pageant of this caliber has tried it here. The fact that we will also be broadcasting the
Gala Night and revelation of the Miss Universe Malaysia 2012 candidate on 10 November
2011 LIVE is another historic milestone for the pageant and the country,” enthused Andrea Fonseka, the Miss Universe Malaysia Organisation National Director.

designs, combination of colours, and the neatness of the workmanship. All the major
elements of this intricate and graceful art form that is as functional as it is beautiful have been
incorporated into the National Costume for Miss Universe Malaysia 2011,” said the design maestro Amir Luqman Othman .
