Well well well, a few more weeks and Papua New Guinea turns 46 years. It’s been an amazing ride – the good, the bad and everything in between but we’re still kicking right?

Now, one of the industries that has picked up over the 46 years is the fashion industry. If the recent Miss Pacific Pageant PNG is any indication, Papua New Guinea’s culture is now being displayed at an entirely different level – a level that is exciting.

And then we have the regular SMEs, the mamas that design their own meri blouse and have sew them themselves. It’s an amazing craft and the number of individuals taking this path as a small business is growing rapidly.

Over the past couple of weeks, our partner consulting firm Vai Virtual has helped some amazing individuals with their small businesses such as registering their business names, renewing them and even protecting their intellectual property.

One such business is Island’s Elegance and their recent offering to celebrate the country’s 46 years is stunning.

Here are a few pics to showcase. Now if you’re in Australia and interested in any of these give us a buzz, we’ll help you out in getting them and having them shipped. Email us for more information on
