AUSTRALIAN designer Karen Fulton will be one of the stylists showcasing her work at the 2012 Style Fiji in Nadi.
Fulton will be displaying her Poison Arrow collection Zipporra in Denarau on December 1 when the show raises money for charity.
Filled with beautiful intricate designs inspired by the environment, Fulton's summer collection will be one of the drawcards at the show this year.
"Poison Arrow is inspired by the Amazon and its people and creatures to bring awareness and to try and put a stop to the Belo Monte Monster dams going forward, which will devastate the Amazon," Fulton said.
"This collection has been inspired by the ocean and its creatures," she said.
Fulton also uses her designs to advocate for the environment.
She especially uses her work to educate people about the creatures of the oceans and also create awareness of overfishing."I want to use this collection to educate people about the creatures of the ocean and to bring awareness of over fishing and the murders of our great cetaceans, which happens in world's oceans and needs to be put to a stop," Fulton said.
The designer and her group will not only be advocating for the ocean and the environment during the event.
They will also raise awareness on the plight of sea mammals such as whales and dolphins.
"We will also be shooting the campaign for the cetacea whilst we are in Fiji," she said.
Style Fiji is a charity event that raises money for the Nadi Hospital.
Organised by Project Bula Mai, the event brings together fashion designers, models and business houses to raise money for the hospital.
At the end of the inaugural Style Fiji last year, Project Bula Mai raised about $200,000 in cash and donations for the hospital.
