LOCAL designer Ana Rabuka will be featuring in two categories at this month's Fiji Fashion Week, the Emerging designers category and resort wear.
Ms Rabuka says it is a daunting task putting together two collections.
She says the inspiration for her resort wear collection, Kaiyanu, was drawn from the ocean.
"The inspiration is the ocean, the beach, palm trees and that has come in the colours and with the fabric I've picked," Ms Rabuka said.
Her established designer's collection LMV, short for Lomanivanua, however, was inspired through a domestic flight across Viti Levu.
"When you fly from Nausori to Nadi, you come past all the valleys and the mountains. All the colours inspired this collection."
Ms Rabuka is riding on the success of last season's collection Lady Medinilla, inspired from the Tagimoucia flower from Taveuni.
She hopes to do much better and strengthen her presence, through the two categories, in this year's show.
"On the catwalk (last year), I showcased 15 dresses but there was a huge demand of the Tagimoucia theme after the show so I actually branched it out to shirts, sulu and even Manchester collection."
