Fiji is a country that is naturally diverse, indeed Suva, the global centre for Pacific fashion, is the most naturally diverse geographic centre in our region.
The Bottega Gold Fijian Fashion Festival is committed to becoming a global leader in championing diversity, inclusivity, and excellence.
The festival is proud to represent the full width and breadth of our ethnic backgrounds, people with disabilities, trans people, gender non conforming people, and diverse body shapes and sizes.
It is of the utmost impossible that the fashion industry belongs to us, and that we start laying foundations for a future we can all be proud of.
It is possible for us all to live life golden, in whatever form we were created. The Festival celebrates our diversity, and it is not a fad, a passing trend, or the fashion of the day. It is here to stay.
The Revolution is here. Models Hanisi Hodge, Serenia Raura and Phillipa Steele (Model Manager) are taking part in the Festival.
