Freedom in colour

Torika Tokalau
Wednesday, May 28, 2014

AISEA Konrote will be showcasing not one, but two collections in the 2014 Fiji Fashion Week in two categories.

Konrote's garments will be featured in the Resort Wear show on the opening night on May 29. The Established Designers show on the final night of FJFW is on May 31.

With his success in the musical stage show Karmen, where he was in charge of costumes and wardrobe, Konrote's collections at this year's fashion event will be all about colours.

"Colours, it portrays a lot of freedom, easy to put on, easy to take off," he said.

"It's in line with living in luxury at resorts, out in the sun and an infusion of colours that work with the sun during the day and some slight glitters in the night."

Konrote says his established collection has achieved another level of fashion.

"There are 16 pieces and the collection is called Interrupting Black and White."
