Models dressed for the Juicy Couture fashion show that took place at noon Sept. 8 on Ala Moana Center's Centerstage, part of the mall's 2012 Fall Fashion Event that took place over four days.
Ala Moana's Fall Fashion Event was highlighted by more than a dozen fashion shows, including those by Old Navy and Neiman Marcus on Fashion's Night Out, and menswear by Reyn Spooner on Sept. 7, with the bulk of the shows taking place Sept. 8 and 9 on Centerstage.
Saturday's lineup, beginning at noon, was: Juicy Couture, Banana Republic, Diane Von Furstenburg, Jimmy Choo and Cache, Spiral Girl and Cache.
Valerie Joseph opened Sunday's showings, followed by: White House/Black Market, Maui Divers and White House/Black Market, and Cinnamon Girl.
It must have been challenging to pull off that many looks every hour on the hour, but stylist Amos Kotomori and his crew of mostly Honolulu Community College Fashion Technology students and graduates pulled it off in style.
On Saturday, I was only able to attend the first three shows before heading off to the Hawaii Food & Wine Festival's "Farm to Table: A Makahiki Festival" event at the Hilton Hawaiian Village.
On Sunday, I decided to rest and didn't go anywhere, but stayed home to edit all my videos. I was all achy from the mix of standing all week and being slumped over a video screen all day, but I went for a massage and it worked wonders. Remember that next time you have a non-stop weekend.
