PNG local designers

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.

Platform set to promote local designers

Following from the Project Runway on July 30 that saw 10 local designers stage 71 outfits, the PNG Fashion week on August 20 will feature seven local designers.

From a designers view, these events are blessings as described by Natasha Tamanabae of Elite Fashion Club.

Tamanabae is an upcoming designer who has been making a name in the industry with her unique BAIWA brand and using these platforms to promote her brand.

“We need a platform, a place where we can sell our staff and also be recognised and also to promote PNG.
