Meet Sarah Toganivalu.

She is the director of Island Inspired Fiji, a creative design studio based in Pacific Harbour.

It envisions and creates inspiring interiors, graphic design solutions and events.

Ms Toganivalu, originally from Bau, Tailevu, was part of the Loma ni Vale exhibition which ended yesterday on a high note at Suva’s Grand Pacific Hotel.

Her main emphasis was to work with local vendors from the flea market and handicraft market to give them a platform to display their artwork.

In 2011, she received a Bachelor of Design with First Class Honours, majoring in Spatial design from Massey University in New Zealand.

She has worked both in New Zealand and Fiji in the interiors and architectural industries.

 

What’s One Place You’d Take Every Visitor To In Fiji And Why?
I live in Pacific Harbour.

Whenever people come to Fiji to visit I would always try to show them around Pacific Harbour.

There is a waterfall around the area and mountain where people can hike to see the beautiful view.

These are places which are accessible to me and I don’t really have much time to go and visit a lot of the islands, I try to make the most of what I have in my little bubble which is my surroundings here at Pacific Harbour.

The Coral Coast is another beautiful place to go too.

 

What’s Your Secret Backyard Favourite Spot?
There is a couple of spots so by my house in Pacific Harbour there is a little hill and it’s about a 10 minute hike to the top.

The lookout is absolutely stunning and not many people know about the spot. But you have to go out with a group of friends and the view is really worth it and you can see Beqa island which is gorgeous.

 

What’s Your Favourite Place In Fiji For A Pie/Coffee?
Weta Coffee.

Another place is Legacy Café in Pacific Harbour and they have just recently renovated the cafe.

 

What’s one Fiji spot on the top of your bucket list?
Yasawa Island.
