Countdown to first-ever PNGFW runway begins!

It’s countdown time to the first-ever runway of the inaugural PNG Fashion Week.

In a few hours’ time, seven dynamic, young and upcoming designers will showcase their clothing line tonight at the Stanley Hotel and Suites.

The three-year journey for PNG Fashion Week is now a reality and the beginning of an even longer journey for PNG’s fashion industry.

As highlighted by PNGFW director Janet Sios, PNG has a thousand reasons to offer to the fashion and garment industry market with our tribal trend designs.

“To be honest, it has taken a bit of time to try and make it happen. I’ve tried to do it for the last three years but I didn’t have the capacity and support to actually pull it off,” she said.

“This year, we have been able to connect with the right people and sponsors to raise money and pay people to come and coordinate the PNGFW show.

“For that, I acknowledge and salute them for being a beacon of hope for our models and local designers in providing an opportunity to promote and market their products and talents.”
