The stage was set for Australia’s most prestigious platform for Pacific Island origin designers, with the 2017 iteration of Pacific Runway back in action late last month.
Sachajuan styled the diverse and fashion-forward show, with a talented hair team in tow and backstage to create the eclectic looks. The premier event, hosted at Sydney’s Carriageworks, was attended by Pacific, New Zealand and Australian fashion VIPs and the media. Traditional influences, seasonal trends, contemporary touch points and bold designs all walked the runway.
Led by Hair Director Trevor Masoe, the Sachajuan team also included Isaac Ah Kiong, Tein Cowen, Lee Andrews, Karissa Setu, Bow Feiloakitau, Helen Masoe, Helen Tupai, Molly Leilua, Terry Piua, Alofa Privitera
Danica Ta’ala, Marie Ropeti-Lupeli and Shannon J Williams. The team championed strong natural textures and a wide variation in style across the whole show. Harlotte Cosmetics complemented the hair with their beauty looks.
“It’s about showing a different side to the Pacific, using a high profile to draw attention to what Pacific people are capable of doing,” famous Tongan Olympics flag bearer Pita Taufatofua, who walked the runway, said. “Pacific designers have world class skills and creativity and Pacific Runway give them an opportunity to show this.”
Packed with patterns, interesting fabrics, and bright colours, Pacific Runway once again showcased the beauty in diversity and the importance of stepping out of our comfort zones for aesthetic inspiration. Congratulations to Sachajuan for being part of this cultural extravaganza.
