Night of fashion

A ONE night only fashion show will be held next month at the Sofitel Fiji Resort and Spa.

Organised by the Fiji Fashion Week, the show will feature only resort wear on August 30.

Fiji Fashion Week managing director Ellen Whippy-Knight said the Resort Wear Show would feature new collections from Fiji's crème de la crème designers as well as international designers.

"These are all brand new collections," Ms Whippy-Knight said.

"It's exciting seeing not only our established designers but emerging designers such as Ashly Daunibau, Yolla and Netani and Ami Petero turning out with their resort wear collections."

She said patrons could also look forward to Fijian established designers which included Hupfeld Hoerder, Ana Rabuka and Moira Solvalu.

Fiji Fashion Week ticketing manager Lite Dauniika said the interest for tickets was overwhelming.

She said the show would also attract tourists, a good platform to promote local designers, the fashion industry and the country.

"The ticket pre-sale enquiries and bookings have been overwhelming and with the event being on Denarau, locals and tourists can have a taste of the Fiji fashion scene," Ms Dauniika said.

Tickets for the Resort Wear Show in Nadi went on sale last Friday.
