The Puteri Indonesia organization hosted a virtual showcase cum press conference, ‘Jihane Almira Chedid Goes To Miss Supranational 2021', a few hours ago on their official YouTube channel to send-off Jihane who will soon be leaving for Poland to represent Indonesia at Miss Supranational 2021 after a yearlong wait.

The showcase was a theme concept by the queen herself, which reflected her personal character as she exhibited the parade of A-list designers chosen by herself. Enlivened by a special performance by musical sensations Ariyo and Baim and hosted by the stunning Patricia Gouw. During the event, Jihane paraded the stage in four stunning gowns and highlighted her performance as she revealed her official national costume for the international stint.



Jihane’s first look was a stunning white gown, La Modernite, custom designed by Tommy Pancamurti. She dazzled in the gown as she walked the ramp with a warm smile and a beaming charm. Her second look was a gorgeous evening gown, Strong Roots Gown, designed by Denny Opulence which glittered like stars on Jihane as she paced the ramp in the golden attire. The next outfit was a Red Vintage Gown by ANAZ channeling Jihane’s class and confidence as a royalty on the stage with white pearls embracing the whole look.



One of the showstoppers for the night was Jihane’s next appearance in the Kebaya Melati Suci, a kebaya gown designed by Anne Avantie Heart. The white kebaya gives the meaning of sincerity and purity, which is very distinctive reflection of an Indonesian Princess. Combined with the charm of Contemporary Parang Batik which is presented universally without leaving the roots of the nation's culture, it is called the sacred jasmine kebaya, which means the philosophy of fragrance. It is hoped that it will also provide a spiritual prayer so that a princess who wears it always makes the name of the Indonesian nation and state proud in the eyes of the world.



The diva then presented a speech as she sets forth to conquer the first-ever Miss Supranational Crown for Indonesia. She said, “It has been a tough year for all of us, but I am humbled and honored to be in such amazing journey in the past year. I truly never had planned for this to happen in my life so precisely. Entitltled to become Puteri Indonesia Pariwisata and to Miss Supranational Indonesia 2020 has given me the essence of an open horizon, where I was privileged to see things and situations in a wider and fuller version. It has taught me so many things, uphill to rock bottom, I have been there all, but I accepted that as a process of learning, growing and sharpening my resistance.”

“I am eager to look far and forward to my journey at Miss Supranational 2021 competition. My name is Jihane Almira Chedid, once again I say, thank you,” she concluded, showcasing how confident, well-prepared and dedicated she is to represent the country at Miss Supranational 2021.



The event concluded with the highlight of the evening as Jihane revealed her official national costume, ‘The Dashing of Equus Caballus’. Levico Butik presented a new piece in collaboration with Eggie Jasmin Artisan Couture in crafting the ever-glamorous & powerful fashion pieces from the heritage of East Nusa Tenggara. Inspired by the valorous horse native to East Nusa Tenggara, Equus Caballus has a powerful racing strength and speed, among many other types of Indonesian horses.

As gold represents novelty, power, and glory, ‘The Dashing Of Equus Caballus' is crafted in gold-plated fabrication on the bustier, headpiece, and boot shoes to exude the regal aura of whoever encounters this majestic creature. The use of gold chain material & gold embellishment carving as protective armor on the headpiece represents the power of masculine and robust knight.



The sprinkle of 10,000 diamond rhinestones on the overall costume, combined with Brocade & Sequins Fabrics on the inside, gives the costume a feminine touch in a solid look. As the final touch, the application of extra pearl & crystal drops gives a luxurious and extravagant impression of this national costume to the supranational stage.

Jihane has already been emerging as one of the strongest contenders for the title of Miss Supranational this year and this showcase as her send-off presentation only added to our excitement and expectations as we eagerly wait to see her set the international stage on fire with her beauty, charm, confidence and the stunning looks, backed with her preparations of almost more than a year.
