Glamorous resort wear

Torika Tokalau

IT will be fashion resort wear at its most glamorous.

This was the message from Fiji Fashion Week managing director Ellen Whippy-Knight as the opening night of the 2014 FJFW draws closer

Resort wear will open FJFW on May 29 at the Grand Pacific Hotel, also celebrating 100 years of fashion in Fiji.

"The front row tickets have all sold out," Ms Whippy-Knight said.

"We expect it to be sold out because resort wear is not just for beach wear and for holiday, it's for everyday wear and it is glamorous."

She said 16 designers would showcase their resort wear collections on the runway, four of which are international designers.

"It will open with Sonam Sapra and her new joint venture with Intimate Apparel Fiji for their new label called Intimate Fiji.

"And we will close with Sera Jane, New Zealand's top resort wear designer and her label is called Surface too deep."
