Join us at the first-ever HONOLULU Fashion week, Nov. 6-9. It’s free and open to the public!
HONOLULU Fashion Week is your opportunity to experience high-level fashion on the island of O‘ahu. It’s a little piece of New York, right here in Honolulu. Put together in partnership with Japan Fashion Week Organization, Hawai‘i Fashion Incubator, and the Department of Business, Economic Development and Tourism, HONOLULU Fashion Week provides an opportunity to experience fashion in a truly insider way.
At Fashion Week, we’ll have runway shows, shopping and fashion related events all day long. We’ll feature never-before-seen pieces from renowned designers like Sig Zane and Kaypee Soh, and national collaborations with designers like Saturdays Surf NYC. Our art installation turned pop-up boutique will provide a uniquely gallery-like experience. It will be an opportunity to shop for clothing and accessories made just for the event by local designers (see the ever-growing list, here). We encourage you to stop by early–these pieces are limited and are expected to sell out.
Runway shows will be produced by world renowned fashion producer Lynne O’Neill and models styled by distinguished stylist Don Sumada. The production talent behind the event hails from New York, and has worked on events as large as New York Fashion Week. Read more about the creative team, here.
Whether you’re into shopping or fashion, you won’t want to miss out on HONOLULU Fashion Week. RSVP on Facebook, now!
