What an amazing experience. IIRWT2015 brought us to Fiji as International guests for this years FJFW15 in Suva. Along with our team of Aboriginal and Torres Strait models representing Indigenous Australia, Pandanah opened the show to hundreds of fashion lovers on the 28th, May. We are eternally grateful for the opportunity to showcase our designs, Ellen Whippy-Knight and all at Fiji Fashion Week!

some highlights of the night…
The week prior to Fashion Week, we got the chance to participate in a cultural exchange to the Fijian Villages of Sorokoba, Nasaolo and Natanuku, and Suvavou. Our group were the first EVER foreign guests invited to stay in the Sorokoba village of Ba, the second largest provence in Viti Levu. This cultural exchange between these First Nation Communities was the first of its kind. The locals welcomed us in as one of their own, showering us with generosity, love, music and dance. We will never forget our time here and look forward to returning one day.
