A flair for fashion

Henrietta Fiso showcases a traditional costume crafted by her mother, Nimo, last Friday.

The first Pasifika Fashion Show in Invercargill was held at the Scottish Hall last Friday night. Designers showcased outfits they had made over the course of a couple of months. Collections featured bright colours and traditional designs.  Southland Express reporter Laura Smith was there to capture some of the moments from the night.
