Dress smart this wet season

Get comfortable so you’re not caught off-guard, cold and shivering at the end of the day.

Here’s a few tips on what to do or have and what not to do or have:

1. Umbrella 

An umbrella is the only other accessory you must never forget. Arm yourself with something you can comfortably maneuver in the chaos of this weather.

2. Rain coat/ Poncho

With the strong winds, rain coat or a poncho are better options to keep dry. These are waterproof or water-resistant worn to protect the body from the rain.

Dressed for the race

As is the case, Royal Papua Yatch Club joined in on the fun.

Organising a mini fashion show in partnership with the PNG Fashion Designers and Retailers Association.

The fashion show featured staff from the yacht club as well as the six contestants of Miss Pacific Islands Pageant PNG.

Showing off a variety of categories from beach wear, work wear, evening/cocktail and bridal wear.

But focus was not only on the runway.

In the spirit of the race, participants at the lunch came dressed up.

Dresses, hats, and hair, on point glamour.

This fashion designer makes clothes for dead bodies

"It's certainly not the career path I imagined I was going to be getting into," says Dr Interlandi, who completed her PhD project, [A]Dressing Death: Fashioning Garments for the Grave, at Melbourne's RMIT.

India crowns its first transgender beauty queen

Miss Transqueen India aimed to celebrate gender fluidity and enhance the profile of India's trans community, with the winner being presented with an opportunity to represent India at the International Queen pageant in Thailand in March 2018.
