On a day when local models sizzled the Fiji Fashion Week catwalk to showcase the work of local designers at its best, another young and aspiring Fijian designer, Bhavick Lawrence Chandra commonly known as ‘Bayvick’ is taking Fiji’s fashion to another level in Australia.

The 20-year-old who is originally from Lomanikoro in Bau is currently in Australia showcasing his designs to the Fijian community.

Bayvick was invited by the Fijian community in Australia to participate in a few fashion shows.

According to Bayvick his outfits were decorated with Lapita prints and were designed to suit the people and weather in Australia.

“The vibrant colours of the Lapita was the highlight of the day with massive head-pieces and turbans around the models heads,” Bayvick said.

He told FijiLive that his designs were showcased in front of more than 12,000 people and that his designs are currently on display at the Sydney Art Museum.

Bayvick has two more fashion shows in Queensland before returning to Fiji.
