Rako Pasefika was the crowd favourite during the finale of the 15th Fiji Fashion Week show as more than 20 singers and dancers got the opportunity to woo their audience once again especially after COVID-19 did not allow for it the last two years.

Letila Mitchell, who is the Artistic Director of Rako Pasefika and the Creative Director of Fiji Fashion Week says these young people really struggled in the last two years with no work and no income from the arts.

She says she really wanted to do a show that brought all those young people back into that arena and give them a new life to kickstart the industry again.

Mitchell is also a fashion designer showcased her Letila Mijieli line during the FJFWxPalmolive 2022 show last night.

She says she is really proud of her collection as it's been two years of research into the sustainable side of fashion.
