The DVF boutique at Ala Moana Center welcomed members of the Junior League of Honolulu for a private party Feb. 17 in advance of JLH's "Sacs in the City" fundraiser coming up on Girl's Day, March 3.
Women browsed the colorful display of Spring 2012 designs to find something to wear to the event to show their support for the designer who has shown an interest in Hawaii's arts and culture scene. During her visit here last fall, she contributed $10,000 to EuroCinema Hawaii.
Diane Von Furstenberg is the featured designer for the luncheon fashion show highlighted by a silent auction of luxury handbags and other merchandise, which raises funds for the organization's community work.
On the runway at the Sheraton Waikiki will be 24 designs from the DVF Spring/Summer 2012 New York runway.
Tickets for the event, taking place 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., are $95. Visit www.juniorleagueofhonolulu.org for more information.

BFFs Jill Misawa and designer Andy South, who apparently has been working on an accessories collection. I recognized his south-directional logo right away. Now that's good branding!

I love the Good & Plenty candy colors in this clutch.
