The three piece custom made gown is made of different materials. The upper gown is covered with recycled corded red lace and sewn with sequins for sparkle. The upper gown reflects the colors of the lava from the volcanic eruption.
The pencil skirt is made of recycled corrugated cardboard boxes, cut into diamond shape and the floor sweeping trail is covered with 1,300 pcs of recycled clear plastic cups and paper mache’ painted to show the hilly and amazing Seven Colored Earth of Chamarel in the island of Mauritius.

Mauritius representing , the Seven Colored Earth(s)[1] (Terres des Sept Couleurs in French) are a geological formation and prominent tourist attraction found in the Chamarel plain in south-western Mauritius.
