A CHARITY luncheon organised by the Fiji Fashion Week will soon see the Dilkusha Girls Home buying some new items for the orphanage.
The luncheon was held at De Vos on the Park Hotel restaurant in Suva yesterday and saw the Fiji Fashion Week raise close to $5000 that would be directed to the orphanage's coffers.
"It was one of our most successful events ever as one of the women bid for a dress right up to $1050.
"That shows the support we have from members of the public," Fiji Fashion Week director Ellen Whippy-Knight said.
The luncheon was attended by more than 50 business people, tourists and members of the public who also participated in an auction where three dresses were up for grabs.
Ms Whippy-Knight said a staff of the orphanage who was present at the luncheon was pleased with the amount raised.
"The lady said they would be able to buy some electrical appliances they need," Ms Whippy-Knight said.
The Fiji Fashion Week has also lined up three days of fashion show in the capital city, with the Tribe Echoes of the Pacific category opening the show last night.
The Fiji Fashion Week continues today and will end tomorrow with the LICI Established Designers category.
