You might expect to see the city’s best Island-inspired fashions at HONOLULU Fashion Week. What you might not expect is to see it all in one show. Live Aloha delivers back-to-back, tropical-minded ensembles created by O‘ahu-based designers and styled by Hilo-born, New York-famous Don Sumada. “The theme for the Live Aloha show is Island prints,” he says. “The audience can expect to see an amazing array of beautiful new styles and patterns from four established designers.”

The far-from-kitschy alohawear lineup truly celebrates the local talent we have here on the island. We couldn’t be prouder to present a show that encourages everyone to share, wear and live aloha.

 

Check out the Live Aloha fashion show Friday, Nov. 11 at 4 p.m. at the Hawai‘i Convention Center.
