Hawaiian fashion designer, Kini Zamora, is coming to the much anticipated Fiji Fashion Week (FJFW) show next week.

Mr Zamora, the star of the US fashion television show, Project Runaway, will be showcasing the Spring Summer 17 Resort collection.

This was confirmed by FJFW managing director, Ellen Whippy-Knight with an overwhelming response to this designer call.

Ms Whippy-Knight said for 2017, they have managed to secure several icons in the global fashion industry from designers to educators, media, and fashion influencers.

Also confirmed are celebrity fashion influencer, Sarah Ellen, Sonny Vandevelde, Sarah Jane, and US-based photographer Adam Katz Sinding, and UK-based Yvan Rodic, who will be documenting the best of Fijian street looks.

The launch of the Pacific Islands Resort Show on Thursday, May 25 will feature 13 designers from 11 regions – designers from the Cook Islands, Samoa, Tonga and more.

Another first for the event is the business symposium next Friday, which is a full day educational workshop on Fiji and the global industry.

“FJFW is proud of the opportunities that have been extended to designers within Fiji and across the Pacific through our fashion week event,” Ms Whippy-Knight said.

“This year marks such a major achievement for us in terms of bringing international standard fashion show to Fiji for our 10-year anniversary.”

The Fiji Fashion Week event is from May 22 to 27 at the Vodafone Arena, Suva.
