May 1, 2021, at the Grand Pacific Hotel will be a night of glitz and glamour for the fashion world.

With tickets to Wearing Fiji – A Fashion Project show selling fast for the gala event, fashion lovers are encouraged to grab tickets right away.

Front row tickets, $200 each, are sold out, Wearing Fiji co-founder Samson Lee said.

Row B and Row C tickets are $160 and $140 respectively .

Designers for the show gathered at the Grand Pacific Hotel in Suva, yesterday, to chose their models.

Mr Lee said most of the models that turned up were selected for the upcoming show.

“We’ve been rehearsing for a couple of weeks,” he said.

“Next week we’ll start walking into designer lineups.

“So for example, if Hupfeld Hoeder chose 30 models today, by next week they’ll start working on those lines.”

The model casting brought 74 fresh vibrant faces.

Mr Lee promises to deliver a better show this year against last year’s record.

The focus of the show will be on the mentorship programme, Mr Lee said.

“It’s about mentoring students,” he said.

Mr Lee said the mentoring programme last year presented seven designers, which will be replaced with 13 this year.

“This year they actually have a capsule collection, where they do three designs per student.

“Altogether, you’ll be seeing about 39 designs; there’ll be the pre-show before the main show.

“The 39 designs are three per student.

Wearing Fiji hosted a three-month workshop about the journey to the catwalk, which documented everything from picking to measuring, and forecasting to trending, Mr Lee said.

The fashion show next month is a culmination of the journey.
