Farrington prepares to display designs at show

WHEN Australian fashion designer Tracey Farrington arrived in Fiji three years ago, she knew entering a foreign clothing market would not be a walk in the park.

After launching her Bondi Beach Bag Company line at the New Nadi's Farmers Club, Ms Farrington aimed to wholesale her products to boutiques and resorts around the country.

Her hard work has paid off as she will showcase her designs during the Fiji Fashion Week Resort Wear Show at Sofitel Fiji Resort and Spa today.

"I am very excited to take part in this because this is the first time for us to feature our designs in this show," she said.

"We are also proud to work with Ellen and the rest of the Fiji Fashion Week crew because it really is one of the most professional operations in the country.

"We will showcase 24 designs as Bondi Beach Bag Company does not just cater to swimwear; we also have gorgeous colours of resort swimwear, beach bags and hats that are all co-ordinated."

Ms Farrington said her boutique specialised in casual chic resort wear and accessories.

While the company has operated out of Australia for more than 20 years, it has become a well-known designer label in top Fijian resorts.

Ms Farrington credits her success in Fiji to her husband Tom Liu, saying he eased her transition of settling in a new country.

The FJFW Resort Wear Show starts at 7pm.
