Abena Appiah bagged the highly coveted title at this year’s Miss Grand International competition, which was held on Saturday, March 27 in Bangkok, Thailand.

She walked the MGI stage in a lovely Thai-inspired gown by THEE-SI Couture. “Abena loves Thailand. She spent several months learning Thai. So we asked ourselves, ‘If she loves Thailand so much, why don’t we just put her in a Thai-inspired evening gown put together with Thai silk?’ She could be (and she is in our opinion) the ambassador of Thailand,” the brand shared in an Instagram post.
