Pacific Fashion Festival 2016 has been described as the spectacle of art, design and history translated into fashion and this year will bring 12 designers, 45 models and 84 looks.
It will be a “show not to be missed”, according to the organisers, who have notched it up higher, bringing the event to an exclusive venue, at The Edge, Stanley Place, South Brisbane.
Also, behind the PFF lies a higher purpose and vision.
Created by the Leniata Legacy, the concept is to develop and nurture talent for the social and economic empowerment of Pacific communities whilst advocating against family and gender violence.
Leniata Legacy is a campaign aimed at creating awareness against violence and ending gender-based violence. Its mission is to plant a seed that will end gender-based violence in Papua New Guinea through five (5) pillars: Advocacy, Awareness, Education, Charity and Empowerment.
The legacy, through PFF, believes proactive and creative advocacy aligned with cultural celebration will shine light on an issue hidden and silenced in our communities, to create open and safe dialogue.
In addition, this initiative also embraces cultural diversity, unity, positive body image, confidence and family values.
This event is held yearly in Australia, given the country being a world stage that allows multicultural communities to participate in a cultural exchange of endless beauty and is also a vibrant market viable for endless opportunities.
