HISTORY

 

PACIFIC INTERNATIONAL RUNWAY was formally known as PACIFIC RUNWAY FASHION (PRF 2016) and PACIFIC RUNWAY FASHION SHOW (PRFS 2015).

 

In 2015, fashion extraordinaires Failepou Peni, Judy-May Peni and Maisyann Peni and events specialist Jannike Seiuli partnered to produce the first Pacific Runway Fashion Show.

 

Held at Sydney's largest contemporary multi-arts centre – Carriageworks, the event was designed to provide the Pacific community a platform to showcase emerging designers and models.

 

 

An atmosphere filled with 12 designers, 60 models, a team of hair & make-up, over 25 photographer's flashlights at the end of the runway, sponsors, VIPs, and lets not forget the overcrowded audience filling up the seats! The show was a huge success itching to grow bigger in the future.

 

In 2016, the 'Peni' women put on a show stopper of a show held at the watefrontvenue in Darling Harbour, The Dockside Pavilion.

 

This time the atmosphere was double the numbers in designers, photographers and guests!
