Miss World Fiji (MWF) national pageant director Andhy Blake is preparing to sue the Fiji Fashion Week (FFW) unless director Ellen Knight-Whippy issues a public apology over comments she allegedly made to an Australian media.

In a statement, Blake said Knight-Whippy criticised Blake, MWF Koini Vakaloloma’s dance costume and the Miss World Brand to an international media.

Knight-Whippy told Radio Australia's Pacific Beat program that she was horrified when she saw Vakalomaloma's costume, worn during the opening of the contest in Mongolia.

"It certainly does not depict what a traditional Fijian fashionable item is. It has no ties whatsoever with fashion in Fiji or Fiji itself," she had told Radio Australia.
Blake has informed their team in London including their legal team on the legal action against Fiji Fashion Week. They have given her until Saturday to do so or “face legal action.”

Blake said Knight-Whippy’s comments “brought a negative image to Fiji” in the way people view the MW brand.

“Had you been thoughtful and wise, the least you should have done research on cultures of Fiji and by doing so would have noted that the OWL is apart of Fiji culture both itaukei and indo Fijian,” Blake said in an email to Knight-Whippy.

“You forget that our costume was the best at Miss World hence is why we were asked to open the dance of the world section.

“We are preparing to do an expose of how we have been treated by the numerous business individuals such as yourself and I will release to the media the email in which you also slammed and called Torika names, criticized our brand and the numerous other individuals that still owe us pledges, money and agreements.”
