With their unique Tahitian prints, PIA’s garments will receive lots of attention.


Pacific Islands Art (PIA) has announced partnership as part of its wardrobe sponsorship for Miss World Fiji, Brittany Hazelman when she competes at the 65th Miss World to begin in Sanya, China on November 21.

The hand-printed island wear brand whose unique Tahitian prints have outlets  in Lautoka and Namaka in Nadi, will open their new boutique at Queensland Insurance Arcade in Suva on October 24.

PIA managing director Tehau Guyot is excited about the partnership to outfit Miss Fiji during the Miss World contest because it is the largest platform of fashion and beauty.

With their unique Tahitian prints, PIA’s garments will receive lots of attention.

The brand was founded in May, 2012, and is a subsidiary of Tahiti Art Maohi which was founded in Tahiti in 1958.

Garments are designed with the influence of Tahitian Art and since they cannot be identically reproduced, each garment is unique.

Miss Hazelman said she was excited to wear Pacific Islands Art designs during Miss World because the location for this year’s contest was tropical and the unique printed garments would stand out among the tropical location and background of Sanya in the Hainan Province in Southeast Chna.

“While I am proudly representing Fiji at Miss World, I will also be showcasing the beauty of the South Pacific that includes the beauty of our Pasifika cultures, art, gifts, fashion, and talent and above all, uniqueness that sets the South Pacific apart to the rest of the world,” she said.

Among the Pacific Islands Art Miss World collection, Miss World Fiji will also wear a special printed gown and Tahitian flower crown during the National Gift Auction, the fundraiser for Beauty with a Purpose.

A full list of Fijian and South Pacific designers whose garments will be worn alongside Pacific Islands Art’s Miss World collection will be announced soon.

The 65th Miss World will be crowned on December 19t and the live telecast will be on FBC TV.
