Month's work pays off

A MONTH of hard work paid off for fashion designers Andrew Powell and Lana Smith as they featured their Elegant Rebellion label on the Fiji Fashion Week's Resort Wear show at the Grand Pacific Hotel on Thursday night.

They showed 12 pieces of swimwear that were colourful, fun, practical and wearable.

"I guess what was different and unique about our pieces was that we created our own prints which we got sublimated," Ms Smith said.

"It took us one month to get the pieces ready from the concept right down to the actual production.

"We had a few glitches here and there but we managed to put out the pieces and all the hard work was worth it after seeing it on the runway tonight (Thursday)."

Ms Smith commended her partner for his contribution to the label, adding that Mr Powell played a big role in the technical phase of production.

She said those thinking about beginning a career in designing should try it out but do so with passion.
