THE Fiji Fashion Week(FJFW) held its second annual Volunteer Call Tappoo City Food Court on Level 4 in Suva yesterday.

 The first event was held last week at the Playhouse at Selbourne Street in Suva and according to  FJFW, volunteers were required each year to assist in delivering a successful event in positions such as ushers, dressers, runners, administration, catering and guest relations and all  hands on crew support service roles located in front and back of house operations.

FJFW managing director Ellen Whippy Knight said they had a very good response for the volunteer’ call with a large number of people coming for auditions.

“We are looking at 50 volunteers for the show this year. At the moment, we have been over subscribed with volunteers,” Ms Whippy- Knight said.

She said volunteers would be chosen with qualities of good customer skills, presentation and well-spoken personalities.

Meanwhile, FJFW held model rehearsals at the Lambert Hall at the Marist Brothers High School in Suva yesterday as well.

Ms  Whippy- Knight said that 30 new models were selected and altogether there were 60 models consisting of both men and women that would be featuring in this year’ show.

“We have been having rehearsals every week. This year, we are having a very unique European style of choreography for the event,” she said.

“There will be seven runways for these models to walk on and all audiences will get a chance to seat in the front-row for the first time.”
