FJFW excites Tahitian

TAHITIAN fashion designer Hani Haring is excited to be a part of the Fiji Fashion Week for the first time this year.

Ms Haring will showcase her collection Mystic Vahine at the Grand Pacific Hotel during the Resort Wear category event thanks to the French Embassy and said she was proud to be representing Tahiti in Fiji.

"It's our first time in Fiji, and we are really excited to show our work and represent Tahiti, and specially our small island Moorea," Ms Haring said.

Born in Tahiti and raised in Moorea, Ms Haring has always been inspired by dancing, traditional costumes and local crafts.

At 18 she won the prestigious contest Vahine Tahiti and that achievement contributed to the beginning of her fashion career.

HH Creations, Ms Haring label, began on November 11, 2011 and offers lines of ready-made clothing, thought up and made exclusively on Moorea.

"We divide our collection in three parts ­— the white part which embodies the flower of Tiare but also coconut milk and the colonial time with laces and embroideries.

"We selected embroideries and lace of Calais made in France and we use high quality guipures directly from Paris.

"The tie dye part, they are unique. They are handmade by ourselves and designed with local plant leaves (such as the ape, the coconut palms) nuances are intense and hot, the black part for the colour of the pearl of Tahiti.

"We find noble materials as the silk, silk charmer and incrustation with some pearl shell from Tahiti."

HH Creations also has three looks for their men's line, some unique printed tees, unique shirts with vintage floral prints and pants or walk shorts with unique tie dye fabrics.
