"It's about showing a different side to the Pacific, using a high profile to draw attention to what Pacific people are capable of doing." Taufatofua said. "Pacific designers have world class skills and creativity and Pacific Runway gives them an opportunity to show this."
In 2017, 20 top designers from around the Pacific (Fiji, Cook Islands, PNG, Samoa, Tahiti, Tonga), NZ, USA and Australia will present their URBAN RESORT 18 collections at Carriageworks on October 27th.
Owing to the success of 2016, sponsors have jumped at the chance to be associated, one of Australia's top cosmetic companies, Harlotte Cosmetics.
The 2017 Pacific Runway Ambassadors are Mariah Bellaluisa Alone and Margret Lani Gutugutuwai Toga.
