FIFTEEN talented local designers took to the runway yesterday to showcase exquisite pieces of resort wear inspired by the tropical Fijian climate.

The inaugural Fiji Fashion Week Resort Wear Show created much hype among local designers and tourism industry stakeholders as they gathered at the Sofitel Fiji Resort and Spa last night.

Fashion gurus did not leave disappointed as classy, chic and modern resort wear was put on show, with most designers displaying a penchant for bright and colourful garments.

Fiji Fashion Week director Ellen Whippy-Knight had stated the show was to help the local fashion industry integrate with the Fijian tourism scene.

Notable tourism industry members among the crowd was Tourism Fiji events co-ordinator Sally Cooper.
