Show a sell-out

THE Fiji Fashion Week opened last night with the Resort Wear show at the Grand Pacific Hotel and the sold-out show of exotic haute couture resort collections exceeded the expectations of many.

The garments were worn elegantly by the FJFW models and according to FJFW managing director Ellen Whippy-Knight, were simply spectacular.

"It was such an amazing show because the designers made a lot of effort to make what they have produced," Ms Whippy-Knight said.

"The opening night is always spectacular, we promised that and the designers delivered."

She said it was worth having the Resort Wear show open the fashion week for the first time in FJFW history, adding she wouldn't be surprised if the garments sold like hot cakes.

"The local designers were exemplary.

"They have really gone overboard and superceded themselves."

Local designer Sonam Sapra opened the night with her Intimate Fiji collection. Other designers that featured included Sarah Jane, Robert Verebasaga and Mere Shuster, Hupfield Hoarder, Lana Smith, Hanna Hering and Benjamin Schetrit and Failepou Peni.

"The second night (tonight) will be the Emerging Designers show and it's going to be the most unique with cutting edge designs."

The Fiji Times is proud to support and be a print partner of FJFW.
