The Supranational Thailand organization has recently revealed the national costume of the newly crowned Miss Supranational Thailand 2022 for her stint at the Miss Supranational 2022 pageant. Praewwanich Ruangthong will don ‘Thewanaree Srivijaya’ national costume at the international platform.

Designed by Lalanta Khlong, this costume is inspired from the southern region of Thailand, which was the site of the Srivijaya Kingdom in the past, where Buddhism and civilization flourished from the building of temples and bronze sculptures that are unique to Thailand's history. It is also inspired by the bronze statue, the Srivijaya Kingdom's culture blends with the beauty of southern Thai women to create ‘Thewanaree Srivijaya’.



28 years-old Praewwanit is a graduate of the School of Arts and Management from Prince of Songkla University. She is also a host and a model. Not new to pageantry, Prae was the 3rd runner up at Miss Universe Thailand 2020 and 1st runner up at the Miss Thailand World 2018 competitions. Ruangthong has prior experience, great potential and can definitely prove to be a strong contender for the Miss Supranational title.

Last year, Queen Benjarat represented Thailand at Miss Supranational 2021 and finished among the Top 24 finalists. For this year’s edition, Prae will soon depart for Poland to represent the country at the 13th Miss Supranational pageant, scheduled to be held on 15th July at Strzelecki Park Amphitheater in Nowy Sacz.
