Rafael carries lines from many of Hawai‘i’s young and up-and-coming designers, such as Noelani Designs, Fighting Eel and Melia Conrad. “On the Web, it’s really hard to promote names people don’t know,” says Stewart. “But I can put something by a newer designer in the window and people come in to ask about it. The store is a great showcase.” 22 South Pauahi St., 536-2823.
