One look at Robert Kennedy, you might think he is an overseas tourist.

But he is not.

Robert is a Fijian born fashion, textile and interior designer living on Korotogo.

He is one of the co-organisers of the inaugural Loma ni Vale (Inside the House) exhibition at the Grand Pacific Hotel in Suva.

Robert not only co-curated Loma ni Vale, he also has several art pieces, cushions and lamps on display and for sale.

The exhibition which ends today was a collaboration between Robert and the Hot Glass owners Alex and Alice Hill.

The range of products and designs at the exhibition are furniture, art, decorative objects, traditional weaving, lighting, glassware, soft furnishings, tableware, jewellery, giftware, photography and prints.

These products and designs are available to buy or order and will be a superb opportunity for Christmas gifts.

Having grownup in Sigatoka, his two other favourite places in Fiji are Savusavu and Taveuni.
