Pia Wurtzbach wears Bessie Basana on wedding day

Fashion designer Bessie Besana emotionally shared the story of creating Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach’s wedding dress.

She narrated the details on Instagram as she shared the lovely bride’s photos during her wedding day.

“On the quiet morning of November 8, 2022, Pia asked if I can have breakfast in a restaurant in SoHo in New York. While we were chatting over croissants and how the wedding of Carla is gonna happen in a few weeks, Pia casually slid the idea by saying “Since we are on the wedding topic, I really wanted a friend to make my wedding dress and I was hoping it would be you.” I wasn’t able to respond immediately because I honestly didn’t think that I was even going to be an option. She then proceeded to say, “I want it to be done by a friend and you know me so much and I want you to be a part of my wedding.” I admittedly cried a little inside and felt some tears starting to build up at the end of my eyes because I was sincerely touched by her decision. I composed myself and went into my “designer mode” and asked her to make a Pinterest board of inspirations.

I have worked with so many brides to know that choosing your wedding dress designer is a big decision to make, and all the more to dress Pia on such a big milestone in her personal life. The process went very smoothly and I was so happy with how much trust she has given me with my suggestions and technical decisions. Pia, you are truly a great person and I am eternally grateful for how much you have impacted my life. Thank you for always believing in me and my craft of fashion.”, Besana wrote.

The fashion designer also revealed that the design they choose was based on the groom– Jeremy Jauncey’s idea of how he envisioned his wife’s dress would look like while walking down the aisle on their wedding day.
