Creating colorful beauty pageant costumes

With his fabulous, feathered costumes and incredible pageant showstoppers, #LudoGarnier has worked the most prestigious #beautypageants and television competitions in the world. So, it makes sense that he has chosen to bring his design company—Ludo Creations—to the creative cauldron that is Los Angeles.

Born and raised in Belgium, Mr. Garnier worked extensively in Paris before coming to So Cal in 2016. Just some of his recent work from before the move includes: · Costume: Runway Show Finale, Top Model Belgium 2011, 2012 & 2013 · Costume: TV Show Belgium’s Got Talent 2012 · National Costume: Miss Universe (Miss Belgium) 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016& 2017 · National Costume: Miss Europe 2015 · National Costume: Miss World 2015 & 2016 · National Costume: Miss Grand International 2016 · National Costume: Miss International 2016 · National Costume: Miss Heritage Global 2016 · Featured Designer for Finale: Miss Europe Continental (Belgium) 2016

Since moving to Los Angeles, Mr. Garnier has jumped into the local scene with both feet—creating the dazzling National Costume worn by Miss California in the Miss United States competition, 2017, and then for the grand opening of the Dream Hotel at Tao, Hollywood— both a breathtaking Marie Antoinette-inspired confection of feathers and pearls and a stunningly bejeweled geisha.

More recently, Mr. Garnier was the featured designer of the 2019 Miss Filipina International and Miss Filipina Teen International beauty pageants. In fact, at the press presentation of candidates on June 23rd in Porsche, Downtown Los Angeles, all the gowns for the teens and misses—as well as the costumes of the reigning title-holders— were his designs.

In this segment, that originally aired on TV in October 13th, 2019 – Ludo talks about his grandmother who influenced his creativity in designing and making colorful frocks. Ludo then talks about the inspiration for his creations – from birds to candy land.
