New date for Pacific Fusion

The Pacific Fusion Fashion Show, postponed due to the Covid lockdown, will now happen on 26 February 2022.

The sixth annual event will showcase twelve Polynesian designers and Great South Road in Papatoetoe will become the runway for the summer evening show with a stellar lineup of fashion literally stopping traffic!

“We are looking forward to bringing our event to life and hosting this year’s show on the actual road, yes, Great South Road,” says Pacific Fusion Fashion Show founder and director Nora Swann.

Since launching in 2016, the fashion event has grown a loyal and enthusiastic audience and after a successful digital event streamed live from Wellington in late 2020, the event is proud to be returning to its South Auckland roots.

Each PFFS event has had a different theme and this year’s event theme, WOVEN, was chosen by creative director Sammy Salsa.

“It’s a play on weaving fabrics together but also – on a deeper level I see it as interlacing or intertwining culture into modern-day society and how Pacific people interlock into a western world with their fashion aesthetic and culture,” says Salsa. “It’s how Pacific fashion and culture has woven its way into a modern society in order for us (Pacific people) to fit in or to stand on our own.”

The group of designers includes a diverse mix of established and emerging talent who will bring an eclectic and exciting range of looks to the runway.
