On the 29th of December the Philippines hosted the 14th edition of the Miss Earth 2014 Pageant competition, an annual international beauty competition that promotes environmental awareness. Miss Earth is one of the three largest beauty pageants in the world and aspires to raise awareness regarding issues such as human rights ecological conservation and economic development. 85 different entries competed for the title of Miss Earth 2014, all from a variety of different countries around the world, a diverse range of cultures coming together competing for the title of Miss Earth 2014.

The competition hosted a medley of different categories, which each contestant had to compete in to be rewarded with a gold, silver or bronze medal for their country. The national costume category required each contestant to showcase a costume that best represents the culture identity and individuality of their country. Representing England was Gabriella Gatehouse who is Miss Earth England 2014.

Being coats and jackets specialist, we at Serran house decided to be the official sponsors behind the national costume design - representing England. A design concept that both Christopher Ran and Gabriella worked on; designed and crafted in the Serran London studio.

The design was influenced by the prestigious and sophisticated queen’s guard status, with a feminine and elegant twist, having rich gold in-house quilted features, 2 meter back end train and an in-house unique curled epaulette. In the Philippines on the 25th of November Gabriella was announced the nation costume winner, the first of many more.
