Good News For WESTERN DIVISION Fijian Fashion Festival Model Call
Faraz Ali, chairman of the Fashion Council of Fiji, speaks to young people who turned up for the Fijian Fashion Festival Western division model call in Nadi on February 17, 2018.

It was a spectacular turnout for the Fijian Fashion Festival model call in the Western Division yesterday.

Fashion Council of Fiji chairperson Faraz Ali said: “What an incredible turnout for our first Western Model Casting!

“I believe this is the largest number to ever turnout in the west for a model call, and matches our record breaking Suva casting as well (where 110 potential models showed up).

“We are truly committed to bringing fashion to the people, and that’s why we called this Western casting.

“Anyone who hasn’t been selected has been offered the opportunity to be involved in other elements of the Festival to find where they fit in the fashion ecosystem.”

Under the umbrella of the council the Fijian  Fashion Festival is scheduled for June 1 and 2 at the Grand Pacific Hotel.

The Festival is committed to diversity in ethnicity, body shape, and gender expression.

“We are really pleased with the significant turnouts which have allowed us to select models who represent the fullness of Fiji,” Mr Ali said.

“We hope that the public will see themselves in these brave young people as they appear in our campaigns, and strut down our runway.

“Every model who goes through the Festival will leave better, stronger, more confident, and aware of their personal brand.

“Fiji has never had an event so heavily focused on personal development of youth before, and the Festival in partnership with the Fashion Council of Fiji looks forward to creating innovative, confident, and socially conscious future employees and employers. It’s all about holistic development,” Mr Ali said.

There were 68 potential models who showed up and 35 were chosen.
