Contestant Comments:

“I am from a family of three and my mother is my role  model that has contributed to my independence and passion for gender equality and human rights. I was born and raised in Samoa, and I enjoy meeting new people, learning different cultures & travelling. I am a member of the Apia Protestant Church. I love fashion and enjoy new experiences. I’m outgoing, I’m our family breadwinner, and I am always striving for the best.”


Original Style is located at Saleufi (opposite Mercys kiddies). Owned by Vaiala Matapoo the shop has been running for three years. Vaiala has been in the fashion industry in Samoa for over 15 years. He specialises in Fashion design, printing, sewing and provides services ranging from weddings, corporate uniforms, puletasis – all samoan style. Very original for any occasion.
