On Saturday, Nov. 12, HONOLULU Fashion Week presented five runway shows, and they couldn’t have been more diverse. At noon, Manaola Hawai‘i kicked off its show with gold-painted models in show-stopping gowns and contemporary takes on Hawaiian prints. At 2 p.m., Kini Zamora’s Reach the Runway benefit began with three students from the nonprofit program strutting their stuff in outfits designed and created by their peers. Students, parents and mentors got prime seating for Zamora’s Spring/Summer 2017 collection, with colorful, flowing pieces perfect for lounging or making a statement. Ward Village’s 4 p.m. show was all about local fashions you can buy right now from the shopping and entertainment complex and included a special display by some fierce little kiddies in Big Bad Wolf gear and more. At 6 p.m., LeaLea presents: RINKAgram showcased stunning bridal gowns from Four Sis & Co. as well as pieces curated by Japanese model Rinka. The evening wrapped up with Hawai‘i Pacific Health presents Beautiful Survivors, an inspirational celebration of those who have overcome life-threatening illnesses, dressed in outfits and accessories by Kāhala Mall.
