I Heart Hawaii: Andy South



Published:


Lei ChicWe love cheering on Hawai‘i's Andy South on Project Runway, as he breezes through the design challenges and shows the world his career is headed anywhere but south. (And we don't care what Michael Kors said about his Jackie O. look last night -- we're still die-hard fans.)

And while he's sure to make it big in New York, Hawai‘i is where his heart is -- so we asked the fashion wunderkind to share his favorite spots he'll always come home for.

Jewel or Juice
This is my favorite place to go for some acai.  The Warrior Bowl is my favorite and it's such a great pick-me-up during the day.
Jewel or Juice, 3619 Waialae Avenue, 808.734.1700

Bikram Yoga Nimitz
I am a huge fan of the Bikram Yoga practice and I usually start my day taking a class at 5:30 a.m.  I love it!

Sweet Home Café
There are so many great places to eat in Hawai‘i!  I am typically out and about with friends sharing good conversation and quality time over meals.  Some of my favorites are: Sweet Home Café, Spices, and any good Izakaya. I admit to going to Sweet Home on a weekly basis.
Sweet Home Café, 2334 S. King St. #102, 808.947.3707

Chinatown

My favorite hang out is the Chinatown art scene.  My studio is there now, and I absolutely love being able to walk right into a place so inspiring.  And the people there are so diverse, it makes for a great opportunity to people-watch.

Kaimuki Dry Goods
I get a lot of my fine fabrics here.  Locally, they have the best quality textiles.  I normally buy natural fibers like silk and bamboo and dye my own colors.

Lanikai Beach

My favorite!  I love falling asleep on the beach and I try to get as much sun as I can.  I really like being outdoors and I try to jetski whenever I can!  I think I will need to get my own jetski soon!
