Update: 12:01PM TWO of the many rural women who will take part in this years LICI Rural Women Designer Awards showcased some of their designs this morning at the LICI building in Suva.

The women are recipients of some of the Women Ministrys sewing machines and have since then, created garments to showcase for the awards night as well as to generate an income for themselves.

This year also marks the first-ever National Womens Expo 2014, which will be held at the Vodafone Arena in August.
