More than 100 models with 15 designers will take centre stage next month at the Bottega Fijian Fashion Festival.

Fashion Council of Fiji chairperson Faraz Ali said the main reason they existed was to grow the fashion industry in the country and support the role of the fashion council.

He said it would be the first for Fiji providing a platform for designers to engage directly with their markets.

Designers are not held to a theme, however Mr Ali said their internal theme was ‘Neon’, which represented the future, “and we are very much for the future”.

With only few more weeks left for preparations, Mr Ali said they would make sure that they move along with goals aim of the industry.

The Mini Mall

The festival will also provide a trade space called the ‘Mini Mall’ where micro sectors can display their goods.

Mr Ali said it would be the biggest part of the festival with free entry.

“It’s where designers will be setting up to sell their goods,” he said.

“Other artists who operates at the micro sector would also be showcasing their goods at the Mini mall.

“This is where we sort of draw the link between micro, small and medium business.

“The designers are ready, cataloging is done and the models are ready.”

There would be international guest present at the festival and Mr Ali promises a lot of fun.
