Exposure for fashion award recipients

THE Fiji Fashion Week (FJFW) will hold their 'Australian Fashion Week' in Sydney this Saturday.

FJFW public and media relations officer Lice Movono-Rova said they had worked hard to ensure the award recipients from their shows were given international exposure.

FJFW had worked with last year's winner of the Best Established Designer Award, Aisea Konrote, to fundraise for his trip.

Mrs Movono-Rova said they were grateful to the Australian High Commission for their expediency in granting Mr Konrote's visa.

"Our designers are no longer designing for only the local market but they are in touch with international trends," she said.

"FJFW facilitates their ability to do that by ensuring they can attend international fashion week events.

"We won't be sending any of our local models to the fashion show because we have Fijian models that are based in Australia who have shown interest in participating in the fashion show."

The fashion show would also host FJFW's managing director Ellen Whippy-Knight, local event manager Bronwyn Probert and Australian-based make-up professionals Miss Tez.
