Fashion Flight: Paper | Plane

Friday, Nov. 2, 5:30 to 9 p.m.

This special First Friday event, presented by Hawai‘i State Art Museum and Mori by Art + Flea, features two locally loved designers who will showcase their latest pieces on the runway: Matt Bruening will debut his eponymous label’s brand-new Anywhere But Here collection, inspired by escapism through travel; while Rumi Murakami’s Paper collection revisits the designer’s aesthetic roots of structured silhouettes, featuring tailored pieces that fold and drape with an angular, two-dimensional quality that looks like paper.

Free, HiSAM Museum Gallery Shop x Mori by Art + Flea, 250 S. Hotel St. For more information, go here.


Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban in Concert

Friday, Nov. 2, through Sunday, Nov. 4

Do you solemnly swear that you’re up to no good? Magic, mischief and music converge in this special screening, which replaces the film’s unforgettable score with a live symphony orchestra performance in perfect sync with the movie playing on the big screen.

$27–$79, Blaisdell Concert Hall, 777 Ward Ave. For more information and to purchase tickets, go here.
