"Forty models also will be part of the event with their respective designers with six designers from Fiji and one designer from Samoa in attendance," she said.

Ms Thomas said Samoan designer, Dane Mulinu'u Fabricius, was one of the seven designers who would showcase his new collection called "My Pacific Eye" at the event.
