Pacific fashion designers set to display at London event

Sep '12
Several fashion designers from New Zealand, Fiji, Tonga, Kiribati, Cook Islands, Samoa and the UK based Pacific community will showcase a range of fabulous collections at the forthcoming sartorial, cultural and charitable event ‘London Pacific Fashion Show (LPFS)’.
 
Fashion maestro ‘Robert Kennedy’ from Fiji will feature his two Melanesian-inspired collections - ‘Tappoo, Fiji Market’ and ‘Kai Nona’ - at the largest Pacific fashion show in London. 
 
The other highlight of the event includes New Zealand’s Shona Tawhiao, who will present her multiple award winning hand-woven high fashion fibre garments at the event.
 
The LPFS brings together the talents of internationally-acclaimed fashion designers, musicians, artists, tattooists, performers and cultural groups. The event also serves as a meeting ground for the UK Armed Forces and the unique culture of the Pacific Islands. 
 
The profits raised from the event will go directly to the Band of Brothers as a way of acknowledging the contribution of the 3000 Fijian serving personnel in the UK Armed Forces.
