Niuean-Kiwi fashion label Saint Fina debuts at London Pacific Fashion Show

Niue is known for its beauty, its seafood, and its friendly people - and now one Niuean-Kiwi wants to add 'fashion' to that list.

Seraphina Wood's label 'Saint Fina' is designed and made in south Auckland, and it's just debuted at the London Pacific Fashion Show.

Opening the event, her collection of bespoke garments featured dark camo hues, bright pastels and abstract constructions - all designed and made in her garage.

"When you do something you love, it just comes easy," she says.

But it hasn't always been easy for Wood and it hasn't always been fashion.

"I was a full-time mum, and once the kids all left for school, I thought 'now is the time to do something for myself'," she says.

After studying fashion, she knuckled down and designed one-off pieces for clients, infusing her Niuean roots and style into her work.

"Not everyone is a one-size, everyone is different in the way they look and everything sits on people differently - so it's good to design for different shapes and sizes," she says.

Her collection was flaunted on the catwalk by local London models who've taken a liking to their outfits.

"There are so many great outfits. I'm good with mine, I love it, but there are so many I'd love to wear outside the fashion show," one told Newshub.

And another who loves it is the show's organiser Ana Lavekau, who's developed a soft spot for this Kiwi-Niuean style.

"Saint Fina was above good. She was the bomb. She was the fashion bomb. You nailed it! And I'm so super proud. No one could have opened the show better than Saint Fina," she told Newshub.

It's not the only thing Wood's planning on opening this year.

"Hopefully I am out of my shed and I have my own spot. I'm really, really working towards just having a shop to base out of where people can actually come in and buy Saint Fina," she says.

After this show in London there'll be plenty who'll be wanting to do that.
