Fiji Fashion Week (FJFW) received a timely boost after Colgate-Palmolive Fiji (CP) renewed its sponsorship, making Palmolive the official partner of the Pacific’s premier fashion event for the 2021 and 2022, yesterday.

CP general manager, Hiten Lal and FJFW managing director, Ellen Whippy-Knight sealed the deal virtually reaffirming the oral, personal and home care giant’s support for local designers which began last year with $75,000- in the teeth of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Ms Whippy-Knight called CP a friend to FJFW and that the support would allow FJFW to come back stronger after the pandemic.

Mr Lal said 2020 was an exciting year for CP and FJFW despite the pandemic and the event stayed on the tips of tongues for months after.

He said CP was a longstanding partner of the fashion industry internationally and they were delighted to bring this partnership to Fiji.
