2016 Fashion Show Improved

Stella Runway keeps getting better every year.

Always an impressive turnout, latest fashion and lively atmosphere, makes Stella runway the “must see” show for fashion lovers in the capital city.

Last night, the third Stella runway again became the highlight of all fashion shows in PNG this year.

11 designers let their creativity flow onto the runway as young and vibrant models put life into the outfits.

Designers included: Seri Davis – Serika (Coloured water), Wandid Amini Korimbi - Niugini Native Wear (Namaramo), Jacks of PNG – city life collection, Kenny Ng – Kenny collection (the pacific way), Jenny Dalton – CS2K, Rayhannah Pinkil Kalu – RiQue’s design, Sarah Todd – PNGian Kala (Keksii), Kila Xavier – Neneva, Genevieve Igara- Falevai – Wantok Clothing, Dru Douglas – Lumai (vaira), Tabu Warupi – Tabu (masked) and Florence Jauke Kamel – FJK.

This year was a step up from the previous years, according to founder Amanda Donigi, after being challenged by one of the major sponsors – the Australian High Commission.

She said the runway went a step further to bring on board Platinum Model Management Australia to scout local models, the Raffles College of fashion and commerce to identify and train a local designer and Pacific Fashion Runway Australia to get a local designer onto their runway.

“Challenge is good because it increases and improves your creativity,” she said.

Also featured on the runway were visiting collections from Raffles College 2016 student’s collections.
