The Minister for Industry, Trade and Tourism Faiyaz Siddiq Koya praised local fashion designers for their creativity.

Mr Koya said, “In Fiji we have a very young creative population and every time I come to one of these shows it’s just so good to see more creativity, especially in the colours being used.”

The Minister made the comments during the 2015 International Resort Wear Show at Sofitel Fiji Resort and Spa last Saturday night.

He said it was wonderful that the  fashion shows also involved the tourism industry.

The event was organised by Fiji Fashion Week Limited managing director Ellen Whippy – Knight and the committee.

“We are always trying to grow ourselves, to actively get the highest spending tourist to come and this is an added attraction for Fiji. Thank you Ellen (Whippy-Knight) for putting Fiji on the map,” he said.
