Designer Manaola Yap and team pulled out all the stops for a luxe fashion show fundraiser at Saks Fifth Avenue on Saturday, March 10. A celebration of the local label’s recent partnership with the department store, the presentation showcased Manaola’s new Resort 2018 collection, available exclusively at Saks’ Honolulu location.
As a bonus, the audience was also treated to a special showing of Kōlani, the stunning black-and-gold collection inspired by Yap’s vision of modern-day ali‘i fashions that drew raves at HONOLULU Fashion Week and New York Fashion Week.
