Prominent local designers Hupfled Hoerder and Aisea Konrote Fostino walked away with top honors on the first two nights of the 2012 Fiji Fashion Week at the Vodafone Arena in Suva.

Hoerder won the Tribe Echoes of the Pacific event last night for his outstanding designs while Fostino was tonight named LICI Best Established Designer.

Both designers won $1000 each while Fostino will also get the chance to showcase his designs in the upcoming Australia Fashion Week.

FJFW Managing Director, Ellen Whippy-Knight thanked all the designers who took part in the opening two nights of three night event and said this season's program has drawn the best designers from Fiji, the Pacific and from around the globe.

"This is one of the finest shows and the response on the opening two nights has been awesome and I am looking forward to another big crowd on the final night tomorrow where all our emerging designers will display their creativity," said Whippy-Knight.

"The future of the fashion industry in Fiji is certainly looking bright and with the establishment of the Fiji Fashion Council under the chairmanship of Mark Halabe, things are falling on track.

She also thanked the various embassies in the country for sponsoring and flying in some top designers from overseas.

Designers from France, USA, India, Australia, New Zealand, Philipines, Nigeria, Samoa, Cook Islands, Wallis & Futuna are part of this season's Fiji Fashion Week.

The 2012 Fiji Fashion Week concludes with the Emerging Designers event tomorrow night.
