Blend of cultures

FIJI is a melting pot of diverse cultures. This is something Miss World Fiji organisers have taken into consideration when creating events and costumes for the events leading up to the crowning of Miss World Fiji.

Miss Fiji co-ordinator Andhy Blake feels that multicultural diversity was a necessary aspect to showcase to the public.

"At the end of the day we represent Fiji," Mr Blake said.

"Fiji has so many races so when we go to the Miss World Organization we will reflect the Fijian culture and that of our national costume, but here we will showcase all the different cultures," he said yesterday in response to the concerns the public expressed about Indian cultural attire being the official portrait of the Miss World Fiji campaign.

The Miss World Contestants were invited for morning tea by the British High Commissioner, Roderick Drummond, at his residence yesterday.

They also visited The Fiji Times newsroom yesterday.
