Starlight Photography had the opportunity to take pictures of the VAN2017 placard bearers outfits made by local fashion designer Denyse Maki, before the placard bearers hit the spotlight of the opening show of VAN2017 Pacific Mini Games.
According to Starlight Photography, Denyse has always dreamt of becoming a fashion designer and has now turned it into a reality. Using local materials, Denyse added a modern touch with innovative designs to transform the outfit into a fusion of traditional/modern look.
It is wonderful to see young women turning their dreams into reality and taking an interest in fashion and using it as a platform to celebrate Vanuatu ‘s identity. Keep up the good work Denyse!
The stunning designs were showcased at the opening of the VAN2017 Pacific Mini Games and featured on national and regional TV.
