SkinLueur's Francheska to feature designs at Miss Universe Canada pageant

Courage.

That’s the word that would best describe Francheska Esguerra, one of SkinLueur’s “babies”, who took the courage of presenting to organizers her willingness to be part of the Miss Universe Canada pageant on May 12 at the Lyric Theatre of the Meridian Arts Centre in Toronto.

Yes, SkinLueur Aesthetics and Laser Centre in Edmonton is taking care of her, but she won’t be there to compete. Instead, she is this year’s fashion designer for the 70 candidates, including 2021 Miss Universe Canada Tamara Jemuovic, who will crown the new winner on May 14.

After receiving the official designation as a fashion designer, she broke the good news to her family and to Doc Chum, SkinLueur’s CEO, who then relayed the good news to the Alberta Filipino Journal.

Francheska said she was inspired to write an email to the Miss Universe Canada organizers after watching the 2021 Miss Universe competition.
After a presentation of her work and emails back and forth last year, a contract was finally signed in January this year.

Then, the heavy work started.

“It’s a big opportunity for me to showcase my designs on a national stage,” she said. “It’s a dream come true.”

With her experience in the Philippines and her Canadian education in fashion design, all the dresses are ready with the help of her mom and sister. That includes the dresses for the opening of the pageant, swimsuits for the 70 candidates, plus the gown for Miss Jemuovic.

“We are very proud of Francheska and we wish her all the best,” said Doc Chum.
