Nicholas Huxley

FORMER Head Teacher in Fashion, Ultimo TAFE and 9 times nominee, Australian Fashion Laureate

We are honoured to have Mr Nicholas Huxley representing Fiji Fashion Week as our Ambassador in Australia.  Nicholas is one of the leading fashion educators globally and has committed his life to teaching fashion with staggeringly successful results.  

Nicholas first attended Fiji Fashion Week in 2015 and has, since then, held a vision for helping Fijian designers to realise their potential on the international stage.  He is overwhelmed by the sheer creative talent of designers in Fiji and understands that, with careful and considered development, there is no reason why one of our designers isn't about to hit the headlines.

In 2018, Nicholas will be working directly with designers to help harness and develop this talent.  He has accepted the role of Show Producer for Fiji Fashion Week 2018 and along with his expertise in designer development, he will bring a bold iinternational eye to the event.  In the lead up to the show, he wll be working in small groups with designers to hone their skills, concepts and capabilities so that they may shine on the runway during Fiji Fashion Week 2018.

There is no talent like Nicholas in Fiji - no one with the breadth of knowledge and understanding about design, creativity and innovation.  That is why we are thrilled to have Nicholas on the team to bring you Fiji Fashion Week's best show yet!
