Cooper’s Sponsors Miss Bermuda’s Wardrobe

July 12, 2012

Newly crowned Miss Bermuda Rochelle Minors visited A.S Cooper and Sons today [July 12], with the local store sponsoring Miss Minors’ wardrobe for the Miss World competition.

The Cooper’s sponsorship entails helping Miss Bermuda enhance her wardrobe required for her trip next week. Organizers provided a clothing “wish list” based on the schedule of appearances, and Cooper’s does their best to fulfill the requirements.

“Under the direction of our General Merchandise Manager Jim Leamy, we have three fashion buyers/managers assisting with choosing the best suited clothing and accessories. They are Maria Silveira, Donna Boddington [former Miss Bermuda] and Jacqui Neath-Myrie,” Cooper’s Managing Director Somers Cooper said.

This past weekend the 22-year-old student and fashion model was selected over seven other contestants to win the crown. Miss Minors will compete in the 2012 Miss World Pageant in Inner Mongolia, China.

The international pageant is scheduled to have representatives from over 100 nations and will get underway on July 24th, with the finals taking place on August 18th.
