Robert Kennedy is a fourth generation Fijian of Scottish and

Swedish descent. Born in Suva, Robert went on to complete his

secondary school studies in Brisbane Australia and then studied

for BA textiles design at RMIT in Melbourne for 3 years. By the

early 2000s Robert decided that that it was time to return home

to fiji as he saw the opportunities to showcase his talents here.

Robert’s start in Fiji saw him re-settle into Sigatoka on Fiji’s coral

coast and begin designing and printing Masi Artworks that he

sold at regular exibitions Fiji wide. Robert was approached by

Tappoo in mid 2000’s as their exclusive designer and buyer for

their Fiji market brand. His fashion designing started with simple

kaftans with bold tropical prints on them and has developed and

expanded from there.
