Ask any­body versed with the Mel­bourne Cup event and many would say that fash­ion is as in­her­ent to the pres­ti­gious event as the horses and jock­eys are. So it was fit­ting when the Fash­ion Coun­cil of Fiji hosted a cel­e­bra­tion of the event at Par­adiso Restau­rant in Suva yes­ter­day.

In­clu­sive of many lo­cals and in­ter­na­tional bet­tors and fans, chair­per­son Faraz Ali said the rea­son they hosted the gath­er­ing was to ac­knowl­edge one of the most stylish events of the year. “Mel­bourne Cup is one of the most stylish events of the year in the Pa­cific re­gion, where ev­ery­one dresses up with their beau­ti­ful clothes and fas­ci­nat­ing hats to en­joy the race,” he said. “We or­gan­ised this event in or­der to show­case our own dif­fer­ent and unique styles of cloth­ing.

“The coun­cil is all about ed­u­cat­ing the de­sign­ers, stylists, pho­tog­ra­phers and other par­ties to per­fec­tion. “We want to build a world­class, ro­bust and stylist in­dus­try so we can show that Fiji is the cen­tre of Pa­cific fash­ion,” Mr Ali said.
