Aqua Blu Australia by Kristian Chase, Kuiviti by Epeli Tuibeqa and Hupfeld Hoerder Designs by Hupfeld Hoerder.

Fiji Fashion Week Managing Director, Ellen Whippy-Knight says the 15 designers this week have attracted more than $200,000 worth of orders.

This is the first year Fiji Fashion Week went virtual due to COVID-19.

She says her team recognised that while COVID-19 restrictions on physical events meant losing a uniquely exciting atmosphere, recent growth in internet and media technology create the perfect conditions to drive fashion forward.

Whippy-Knight says in the 14 years of the show, this year has probably been the most successful.

The 15 designers include Moira Solvalu, Robert Kennedy, Hupfeld Hoerder, Tracey Farrington, Jessica Hill, Cherish Prasad, Harsha Kumar, Hosanna Kabakoro, Nikhat Khan and Vedika Rathod, Su Samuels, Jackie Whippy, Bulou Caeway, Letilla Mitchell, Kristian Chase and Epeli Tuibeqa.

Whippy-Knight has thanked the naming sponsors, Palmolive and media partners Communications Fiji Limited, Fiji Times, Fiji Television and Media 360.
