This year’s Bottega Fijian Fashion Festival will be an exciting and a unique one, says Fashion Council of Fiji’s chairperson, Faraz Ali.

Mr Ali made the comment yesterday after the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signing between Victoria Wines and the Bottega Fijian Fashion Festival at the Victoria Wines shop in Port Denarau, Nadi.

Mr Ali said it was exciting that the Fijian Fashion Festival partnered for the second time with Victoria Wines director, Kate Vusoniwailala and her team together with the naming partner, Bottega.

He said this year’s Fijian Fashion Festival would showcase for the first time in Fiji, three runways.

“For the first time in Fiji we will have three runways. We have the runway, the waterway and the skyway all at the Grand Pacific Hotel,” he said.

“We have expanded the programme and we are continuing to move towards a more dynamic and global version of the show because we feel that’s what our industry is ready for and what our industry deserves.”

He said as part of the Fashion Council of Fiji, what was needed, was to present more opportunities to designers.

“This year we are limiting the group show to one night and we are having two full days, Saturday and Sunday of individual designer shows.

“We want to continue to grow our platform so that we are able to give all of our designers a better and stronger platform.”

Ms Vusoniwailala said one of the areas in which she would be looking into this year would be the selection of quality products available in Fiji.

“It was not a hard choice for Bottega and Victoria Wines to come on board to support the Fijian Fashion Festival again this year,” she said.

“What we are looking for this year is to look at the wider selection of quality products, every single bottle is stunning.”

The Bottega Fijian Fashion Festival will be held from June 6 to June 9 at the Grand Pacific Hotel in Suva.
