Mga taga-disenyo ng Pasipiko nagkaisa upang maalis ang stigma sa kanilang mga disenyo

Fai Peni's own brand "Lepou" collections in the Pacific Runway Fashion in 2016.

Ang isa sa pinakamalaking kaganapan sa fashion mula sa iba't ibang may pinagmulang Pasipiko, ang Pacific International Runway ay nagbibigay ng isang prestihiyosong lugar para sa mga taga-disenyo mula sa rehiyon ng Pasipiko habang sinusubukan nitong maalis ang stigma at patunayan na ang mga taga-disenyo ng Pasipiko ay higit pa sa mga estilong Hawaiian.

"It's not just about culture, it's also about that the designers are actually are able to design mainstream collections - couture collection. A lot of people when you put the word Pacific or Islander immediately they think that's all the mumu style and the Hawaiian-style. We want to break that stigma by showing what as designers are actually capable of doing. That we are more than capable of just doing a cultural wear, but we can actually implement a lot of our culture into the mainstream styling or mainstream market," bigay-diin ng CEO ng Pacific International Runway (PIR) at fashion extraordinaire Failepou Peni.

Itinatag noong taong 2015, umaasa si Peni na  makita ang PIR sa kalendaryon ng fashion, kilalanin bilang isang kaganapan sa fashion na dadayuhin at pansinin ng mga tao at hikayatin ang mga taga-disenyo mula sa iba't ibang mga bansa sa Pasipiko kabilang na ang Pilipinas na magkasama-sama at maging bahagi ng kaganapang ito . "We are not just about the Pacific Islands, we are all about the multicultural that is happening here in Australia and serving their needs" at sa kalaunan ay makatulong sa pagpapalakas ng ekonomiya ng Australia, pagtatapos ni Peni.
