Reef cos­tume push on Degeneres

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

PERTH de­signer Steph Audino is hop­ing to gain the at­ten­tion of talk show host Ellen Degeneres, send­ing out a pub­lic plea to the co­me­dian to check out her Miss Uni­verse Na­tional cos­tume on In­sta­gram last week.

The pint-size de­signer said she was ex­cited to re­veal the cos­tume af­ter work­ing on it for Miss Uni­verse Aus­tralia Caris Ti­ivel.

Audino said the de­sign was in­spired by the Great Bar­rier Reef, fea­tur­ing colours and tex­tures in the co­ral and species.

Putting a shout out to Degeneres, who sup­ports sav­ing the Aus­tralian icon, Audino said she hoped this would help raise aware­ness and en­cour­age peo­ple to join the fight with many oth­ers around the globe to save the Great Bar­rier Reef.
