Last November’s debut HONOLULU Fashion Week was a total blast. We collaborated with local designers who are key movers and shakers in the Hawai‘i fashion scene, including Sig Zane, Malia Jones and Ari South, and showed some stunning creations on the runway. We welcomed big-name celebs, including Hawai‘i Five-0 star Alex O’Loughlin (Malia Jones’ other half) and Olympic figure skating champion Kristi Yamaguchi, to the festivities and we brought a fabulous retail shop to life with local products and fashions from across the state.
Mark your calendars for Nov. 20–22, and join us this year as we take HONOLULU Fashion Week to the next level. That means more designers, a marketplace where you can shop to your heart's content and a schedule of shows just as hot as last year’s “Live Aloha” and “Get Out!”
Producing the shows again this year will be Lynne Hanzawa O‘Neill, our very own Island-born industry bigwig, fresh from New York Fashion Week. We’ll be taking to the streets to powwow with the fashion community for the latest looks, trends and styles that make Hawai'i fashion a force.
See you at the runway!
HONOLULU Fashion Week will be Nov. 20–22. Stay tuned for more details on schedules and events.
