The Bottega Gold Fijian Fashion Festival is set to bring Suva, the global centre for Pacific fashion, the fashion industry platform it deserves.

Over two fabulous nights, June 1-2 at one of the most iconic venues in our region, the Grand Pacific Hotel, will be transformed into a high energy celebration of the Fijian fashion industry.

A charity dinner will be held in the Brittania Ballroom of the GPH on May 31, where they will be raising funds for the Loloma Foundation.

GPH general manager Peter Gee said: “In our initial conversations with Council chairperson Faraz Ali and Sydel Whippy last year, we were very impressed with their vision to help create sustainable growth within the Fiji fashion industry and to build Suva into a regional hub.

“We were also impressed with their energy, professionalism and enthusiasm and thought that GPH would be the ideal venue for the events that they were planning.

“We have certainly enjoyed the relationship and are very confident that it will be great success.

“Most events will take place in our Britannia Ballroom and pre-function area and we are expecting about over two and a half thousand guests to attend over the three days of the Festival.

“And a further 300 attending the Loloma charity Foundation dinner on the first night.

“Successful events generate great publicity and awareness, not only for the organisers, and GPH, but of course also for Suva and indeed all of Fiji.

“A great example for the Fashion Festival is the two-page feature article that has been published in this month’s Fiji Airways inflight magazine. This includes some wonderful image of stunning locally created outfits with GPH as the back drop – these will literally travel all over the world on the FJ fleet and been seen by millions of people. In addition to that, the event will be attended by a range of Pacific celebrities (including the Olympian Pita Taufatafou) and other global influencers.”
