Glimpse of Paris style

FIJI fashion lovers will get the opportunity to catch a glimpse of what has been creating a buzz in Paris' fashion runways at tomorrow night's Echoes of the Pacific opening night.

Katherine Pradeau has established her name in the fashion world since 2002 and her work has featured alongside Lolita Lempicka, Philippe Adec and Sonia Rykiel ­—a few big names in the world fashion industry.

While she will not be present to show her La Parisenne Nomade collection, she's left that responsibility with her good friend and photographer Romain Nicolas.

"Katherine has six pieces in this collection, which will focus on leather," Mr Nicolas said.

"Her work is very precise and will boast two different cultures that Katherine has always associated her designs with —French and African."

The collection has featured around Europe before but will be shown for the first time in the South Pacific at the Fiji Fashion Week.

"We hope that through the Fiji Fashion Week, it will open up more doors for Katherine to strengthen her fashion relationship with Fiji and the Pacific," Mr Nicolas said.

The Echoes of the Pacific show begins tomorrow night at 7:30pm at the Vodafone Arena in Suva.
