The first Miss Business 2023 in Croatia was not just a fashion show – it was an evening that exceeded all our expectations. The aim of this event was to celebrate the elegance, success, and business excellence of women in the Primorje-Gorski Kotar County, and we can confidently say that we succeeded.

This unforgettable event took place at the beautiful location of Crekvina in Kastav, on September 16, 2023, with the support of the City of Kastav and the Tourist Board of the City of Kastav. We thank them for their support and collaboration, as they recognized the importance of this event for our community.

Vanavi experience, led by Iva Vavan, and all participants together created an unforgettable atmosphere filled with positive energy and support. The program didn’t last too long, and guests continued to mingle, take photos, toast, and connect, just as we intended. New business collaborations were formed, which was one of the key goals of the entire event.

We are especially proud of our candidates who shone on stage and showed that every woman can achieve anything she desires. They radiated elegance, success, and wonderful energy.

We want to mention that students from the vocational school in Opatija participated in creating an unforgettable experience for our participants. With the help of their mentors and experts from the hairdressing and makeup industries, they created fantastic looks that further highlighted the elegance and confidence of our candidates.

A big thank you to all clothing, jewelry, and handbag designers and boutiques for the excellently designed outfits, as you all successfully presented an elegant, confident, and strong businesswoman.
