The women of Macuata are preparing for their first fashion show during the Macuata Day celebration this month.

This was confirmed by Macuata Women’s Group vice-president and former journalist Adi Melaia Qomate.

“This is the first time for a fashion show to take place during the Macuata Day,” Adi Melaia said.

She said the show would take place on the 28 of this month where women around Macuata would showcase their sewing skills.

“Young women who will grace the runway will need to have iTaukei hairstyle (Bui ni Ga), wear and showcase iTaukei wear like Sulu and Jaba and Long-Mumu, men’s bula wear, and iTaukei accessories and wedding attire.

“The aim of the show is trying to conserve and show the younger generation the Macuata iTaukei attires.”

She said a group of women would be chosen to represent Macuata in the National Women’s Expo from October 14 to 16 in Suva.  Meanwhile, the Macuata Day is from May 26 – 29.
