Miss America 2019 Nia Imani Franklin Worked With Wo's Custom Tailoring On Her Winning Attires, New York, New York

From evening gowns to swimsuits and artistic demonstrations to speeches, audiences enjoy watching accomplished women display their talent and beauty at the Miss America Contest. While the contest only crowns one winner, each contestant put in years of dedication and effort to even earn a spot on stage. During their efforts, they’re supported by a community of supporters, including coaches and custom tailors. Wo’s Custom Tailoring in Manhattan provided custom tailoring for Miss America 2019 Nia Imani Franklin, producing all of her winning looks.

tailoringA classically-trained opera singer and advocate for the arts, Franklin has composed over 100 original songs since the age of 5. She served as a music mentor and teacher, sharing her knowledge and passion for the arts with young students. Franklin was crowned Miss Five Boroughs at age 23 and won Miss New York 2018 before achieving her current title of Miss America 2019 on Sept. 9, 2018. 

As one of Wo’s Custom Tailoring’s many loyal clients, she has worked with the shop for years, trusting owner Sheila and her team to make her look her best on stage and off. However, expert tailoring was particularly crucial last year because for the first time the swimsuit portion of the pageant consisted of one-pieces only, as opposed to bikinis. Franklin trusted Wo’s Custom Tailoring to create a beautiful customized piece that conformed seamlessly to her figure. The tailoring service completed a suit that showcased Franklin’s beauty. 

Wo’s Custom Tailoring has been a pillar of the Manhattan community for over 40 years, helping New Yorkers look and feel sophisticated, elegant, and confident. From weddings to beauty pageants and business attire to everyday outfits, this tailoring service provides alterations, leather, and suit repair. Call (212) 988-9889 to schedule a service or visit their website to learn more about their services.
