Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, May 3) -- A fashion design student in Isabela landed an opportunity to design the national costume of a delegate to the upcoming Miss Universe pageant.

In a social media post on Monday, the Central Luzon State University congratulated Kennedy Gasper for having the chance to create Miss Cameroon’s national costume in the prestigious beauty contest.

“At the age of 20, he has proven himself as an outstanding student and fashion designer. He has given extra effort in his studies whilst grabbing sidelines in making costumes, gowns, and participating in contests,” the Facebook post read.

The 20-year-old Gasper is a third year student taking up BS Fashion and Textile Technology, majoring in Fashion Design. He also shared on Monday a screenshot of Miss Cameroon Angèle Kossinda’s Instagram story where a photo of her and some of his creations can be seen.

In another post on Sunday, Gasper said Kossinda’s national costume was already in Hong Kong on the way to the pageant venue in the United States.

The 69th Miss Universe pageant will be held on May 17 in Florida, where South Africa’s Zozibini Tunzi will crown her successor.

Miss Philippines Rabiya Mateo will try her luck in capturing the country’s fifth Miss Universe crown.
