Recap: 5th Annual Ravishing Women Show 2017

We are extremely excited to announce that the winners of Ms. Asia Washington along with Ms. India WA 2017 in Gold, Diamond and Platinum categories were selected at the recent Ravishing Women Festival 2017, held on September 16-17 2017.

This year event was unique in itself as not only we started calling it as a festival instead of show because it includes so many festivities to celebrate everything women, but it also marked in history launch of Ms. Asia WA.

The event was widely covered by media and live streaming of the pageant was viewed by over 85,000 people. Views of pageant photos and videos crossed over 250,000 in various social media circles.

A member of the audience remarked, “I have been to over 20 city and state level competitions/pageants in last few years but Miss Asia Washington Miss India Washington has been the biggest beauty festival I have ever been to!”

The actual pageant was a celebration of womanhood, while giving complete respect to the role of a man in woman’s life, as many fathers, grandfathers, boyfriends, husbands were recognized for their support and love. The 27 contestant ranged in age from teen to mid-50’s. These brilliantly talented girls had created an unbelievable show. The contestant interviews were conducted at Microsoft headquarters. The talent round included a different set of distinguished judges who were highly established in entertainment and Pageant industry.  There were on-stage questions by judges, Western evening gown rounds, Ethnic Wear Rounds and Talent rounds. Contestant’s talents included, poetry readings, monologues, stand-up comedy, on-stage paintings, singing, musical instruments, dancing, slideshows about their life’s struggles and life-lessons through those slide shows and many more. Miss Wheelchair USA was also a part of judge’s panel, which was the most heartwarming part of this pageant for everyone.

This is one of it’s own kind event and as the Founder & President of Ravishing Women, on behalf of entire Ravishing Team, I am extremely proud of its success and honor. Washington is known for celebrating diversity and inclusion. This event was also all about Rejoicing in humanity because I believe that “being human” is greater than any race, ethnic origin and color, religion and creed, sexual orientation, age or personal ability!
