Welcome To Pacific Arts & Fashion
Pacific Arts & Fashion was birthed out by Virginia Toalepai after she discovered the limited opportunities designers in the South Pacific had to showcase their talent. Traveling back and forth to Samoa, Toalepai met different designers who expressed their desire to share their gifts with other parts of the world.
Unfortunately, these designers have very scarce funding and are not able to participate in a lot of the major fashion platforms. With a passion to help more people, Toalepai brainstormed about different opportunities to help these artists.
Pacific Arts & Fashion is a platform that enables Polynesian artists to showcase their designs, craftsmanship and more! Establishing this event provides possibilities for individuals to reach larger crowds on American soil.
Pacific Arts & Fashion is the first of its kind integrating fashion designers, tattooists and other artists.
