FIJI'S uniqueness will be showcased at this year's Miss World Beauty in Ordos, Inner Mongolia, an autonomous region of China.
Miss World Fiji 2012 Koini Elesi Vakaloloma will highlight the unique aspects of her country - the Tagimoucia flower found only on Taveuni, Fiji and the heart-shaped Tavarua Island which recently hosted the Volcom World Surfing Championships.
This is the second time Fiji will be represented at the stage of the world's oldest and longest surviving beauty pageant. She will depart Fiji on July 15 to contest the title of Miss World 2012.
This will bring the controversies of Miss World Fiji to an end after 16-year-old schoolgirl Torika Watters was deemed underage and was not eligible to participate.
As part of the national gift auction to support various charities through Miss World's Beauty with a Purpose program, Miss Fiji will also be presenting a unique oil painting done in collaboration with Pacific Studies in-house artist at the Oceania Centre in USP, Tui Lovelace.
The painting represents Miss World Fiji's Beauty with a Purpose theme of Mental Health that features original art which signify traditional iTaukei patterns, a turtle and two human figures both signifying the struggles one faces when encountering mental health.
Miss World Fiji national director Andhy Blake said Fiji would be welcomed onto to the Miss World stage and would endure a month-long tour through Hong Kong, China and Mongolia before the crowning of the 62nd Miss World on August 18.
Miss World chairwoman and chief executive Julia Morley is excited to receive Fiji's representative and has assured a great time to learn and make new friends while competing for the Miss World title.
Meanwhile, Mr Blake said Miss Fiji's national costume would symbolise the guardian or owl, a unique part of Fijian culture. He said owls had played guiding roles to chiefs in times past.
