Designer Jolandie Fouche of Jolache Couture is behind several evening gowns Natasha has taken with her to the competition.

"These dresses are something totally different from what you have seen before. Our focus was definitely on structure, hues of colour and a mature elegance. I think South Africa will love what they see, and Natasha, with her exceptional radiance, will stand out above all in these unique dresses," Jolandie said.
