FIJI’S award-winning fashion designer Robert Kennedy has teamed up with Prouds, which will soon be carrying the popular fashion brand under the Robert Kennedy label in all its stores.
“We are so excited to share that we will be coming soon to Prouds stores Fiji-wide,” Kennedy revealed in an official video posted on his Facebook and Instagram page.
“Having entered into an exclusive retail partnership with Prouds, we will have a brand new collection of fashion, jewellery, accessories, homewares and giftware, which will be unveiled in May this year,” Kennedy said.
“My new collection is named TUBU, which translates – to grow, increase, spring up and rise. It couldn’t be a more apt description as my label is reinvigorated with this new partnership.”
Kennedy said he was very encouraged with the confidence shown by the team at Prouds for his ‘RKFJ’ label and looked forward to extending his popular brand across the country.
“The partnership with Prouds, which is Fiji’s premium retailer, will ensure my lifestyle brand reaches out to my extremely loyal local customers and tourists alike.”
Founded in 2002, Robert Kennedy Design Fiji brings a fresh take on fashion, textiles, interiors, art, homewares and accessories inspired by the beautiful tropical islands of Fiji.
Based on Fiji’s beautiful Coral Coast in Sigatoka – Robert Kennedy rose to fame after winning the ‘Established Designer of the Year Award’ and the ‘Resort Wear Designer of the Year Award’ at Fiji Fashion Week in 2011 and has since won numerous other accolades over the years.
He has also shown his collections internationally at various international fashion weeks, festivals and events.
Prouds director Tejash Patel said he was very excited to partner with Robert Kennedy Designs as Prouds continued its commitment in offering the best international and local brands in its stores.
“The introduction of Robert Kennedy-inspired lines into Prouds stores will add further value to our existing award-winning local brands and we look forward to a great partnership with Robert,” Mr Patel said.
