It is my great privilege to welcome you to PNG Fashion Week. PNG Fashion Week is the premier fashion event and platform in Papua New Guinea. Our primary objective is to create and nurture the growth of the fashion, textile and beauty industries in PNG in order to support local SMEs, influence the PNG economy and create opportunities in the international market.
The theme for 2018 is “1000 dresses, 1000 tribes”. PNG is a plethora of language, culture, art, colour, and we are the standard in diversity, equal to none. This theme encompasses the very essence of who we are and sets the tone for the PNG Fashion Week 2018 platform.
Fashion is alive and breathing, a constant part of everyday life and we as Papua New Guineans interpret fashion like nowhere else in the world. As one of the last remaining unexplored terrains of the world, we are truly fashion’s final frontier. It is not just common sense to invest in this sleeping giant, it is good business sense.
On behalf of the PNG Fashion Week team, I welcome you to PNG Fashion Week 2018.
Miss Philma Kelegai
