Koi Boutique and Royal Hawaiian Golf were the featured boutiques during an informal fashion show at Il Lupino Trattoria & Wine Bar, marking Administrative Professionals Day, April 25.
Koi Boutique featured jewelry and fashion by Chan Luu, a Vietnamese designer who became famous for her wrap and semi-precious stone jewelry before moving into apparel.
In addition to golf brands associated with the pros, one covetable object was the invisible putter adorned with Swarovski crystals that sells for $250 at Royal Hawaiian Golf. Gloria Woo said it's been selling well because those browsing the shop realize "it's something they don't have, and they can play with it." It's shown in more detail below.
Koi Boutique is in Building B, Level 1. Call 923-6888.
Royal Hawaiian Golf is in Building A, Level 3. Call 924-0144.
