Hot Glass Fiji has been collaborating with Sigatoka-based fashion designer Robert Kennedy to produce a new line of jewelry specially designed to match his 2014 RKFJ Grand Pacific Collection.
This collection was launched at the Established Designer’s category at the MHCC Fiji Fashion Week 2013 on Saturday night.
The Hot Glass pieces added the extra dimension to the RKFJ 2014 Collection for the Tappoo Group of Companies at the collection launch at Tappoo Citty.
Our collaboration is the first time Robert has ever worked with another designer for the Fiji Fashion Week event.
“My collection is inspired by the flora and landscapes of the Pacific and I wanted bold jewelry pieces that would complement the intricate prints on my fabrics. Alice has a very strong sense of colour and forms and came up with some beautiful samples that I knew would work.” said Mr Kennedy.
“She lives just down the road from me in Korotogo, and I knew that she had started a studio called Hot Glass Fiji, but had not seen what she was doing.”
The two artists connected immediately on the style and looks of what Alice had in mind and mixed well with Robert’s new designs.
“It is VERY much in line with what I have been designing this year as I have also been working with the Fiji Arts Council with a jewelry Workshop elsewhere, as well as part designing a new jewelry collection for Tappoo.”
