PNG Fashion Week 2017

PNG Fashion Week announces Brand Ambassadors

The models are Sheilla Yama - Miss World Supermodel PNG 2017 and Glendah Sanadah - Miss Teen World Supermodel PNG 2017.

PNG Fashion Week, set to take off for the second time, made the announcement on Friday.

Managing Director for PNG Fashion Week Philma Kelegai said the ambassador title fitted the two top Supermodels.

“With the added experience of walking International Fashion Week in China, both young women are exemplary young Papua New Guineans and a perfect fit for our brand,” she said.

Designers invited to participate in PNG Fashion Week

This is the second year for PNG Fashion Week, a platform for models and local designers, launched last year.

With no other announcements, the call for interested designers was posted this week on the official facebook page and has already stirred interest among the young community.

The  invitation is open to both established and aspiring designers and registration closes on February 6.

This announcement has local designers talking which has also stirred up discussion among young models, keen to walk the runway with their latest designs and brands.

11yo plans entry on fashion week

Among women who were much older than her, young Adrea Wesley’s interest in clothes design proved that fashion is an industry with so much life and potential.

This year, she has resurfaced with news that she hopes to showcase her designs on the stage of PNG Fashion Week 2017.

Andrea wishes to pursue this goal after she was challenged by the founder of Pacific Runway Fashion, Failepou Peni, an invited guest to the fashion week 2016.
