MISS Universe Australia 2011 Scherri-Lee Biggs will be guest of honour at this year's Fiji Fashion Week annual gala event.


FJFW publicist Jone Tuiipelehaki said Miss Biggs represented Australia at the recent Miss Universe competition in Sao Paulo, Brazil where she won a place in the Top 10.

FJFW managing director Ellen Whippy-Knight said discussions between Fiji Fashion Week and venue sponsor TappooCity were successful after Novo shoes- major sponsor of Miss Universe Australia - accepted her attendance at the four-day extravaganza.

"Novo shoes have a flagship store in TappooCity and Miss Biggs will be in the store on Friday morning, November 11, for autograph signing," Ms Whippy-Knight said.

"A model at 16 years old, Scherri's career is now expected to go forth in leaps and bounds."

Miss Biggs will attend the emerging and established designer shows on November 11 and 12, FJFW said in a statement.

Mr Tuiipelehaki said the 2011 Fiji Fashion Week was expected to be bigger and better with the inclusion of recognisable names on the international fashion scene.

"Miss Biggs will actually be one of a few select international names that will be in the country specifically for Fiji Fashion Week in November," he said.

"As Fiji Fashion Week runs into its fourth year, Fiji has proven that it can be a great launching pad for designers, stylists and models alike," Mr Tuiipelehaki added
