Pacific fashion stamps mark on industry

Body art and clothing were key elements that helped people to socially locate themselves and others.

Fashion continues to be a form of self-expression and identity, and internationally, the industry craves unique designs.

More and more, Pacific designers such as Lautoka-based siblings Moira Solvalu-John and David Solvalu, the driving force behind Fijian labelĀ 8Mountains Collection, are providing distinctive designs by tapping into rich Pacific traditions and cultures, which in-turn are demanding international attention.
