Your guide to Ala Moana Center's The Fall Fashion Event
Catwalk This Way (Sponsored)
What do Karlie Kloss, breathtaking wearable art on runways and you, in a screaming fit of jealous tears, all have in common? New York Fashion Week. The one you couldn't go to.
Maybe you were swamped at work. Maybe your college roommate was getting married. Maybe your goddaughter was being born. Whatever. All you know is that you missed the biggest week of the year and now every "off the runway" fashion story or Kate Moss ad (they're EVERYWHERE, seriously) makes you contemplate your sad, Fashion Week-less life.
Pull yourself together! Get out of bed (and start showering again, please), because mourning time is over. Not only are we just a hop, skip and a jump away from Hawaii Fashion Month, but this Friday through Sunday, you've got Ala Moana Center's The Fall Fashion Event. You'll finally get your fix of fashion shows, because they'll be happening daily from noon-4 p.m. on Hawaii's longest red carpet runway. View the newest looks from fashionista go-tos like Juicy Couture, White House | Black Market and Forever 21, plus a men's runway show featuring modern and vintage aloha shirts from Reyn Spooner, and, on Sunday at 5 p.m., the Honolulu Community College Fashion Technology All Stars Pepsi Fashion Show, showcasing one-of-a-kind pieces by talented alums like Ari South and Reise Kochi, all striving to make Hawaii as chic as can be.
Of course, you can't have a Fashion Week(end) without some major shopping, which is why Ala Moana Center merchants are offering more than 100 amazing discounts, free gifts with purchase and in-store events. Redeem $250 in Ala Moana Center store and restaurant receipts for an exclusive silk/cotton scarf. If you're still feeling a little weepy, give yourself a kick in the tush (just hold the stilettos) by snapping a pic of yourself channeling Gisele on the red carpet. Tag @AlaMoanaCenter and #TFFE on Twitter or Instagram and you could win a $50 Ala Moana Center gift card. How's that for a pick-me-up?
Marc who? Karl who? Who needs New York when you've got all this style and swag right here in the islands?
JK, fellas. We still totally love you.
