Vivienne Westwood marked its first anniversary at The Moana Surfrider Hotel on March 6, a celebration of fearless, individualistic Brit style.

If you've got a wild side at all, you've got to love Dame Westwood, an icon of punk, new wave and shock fashion.

In spite of her ties to the U.K. punk scene and Malcolm McLaren's SEX boutique, I find the clothing carried here to be both original and more easy to wear than you'd imagine, given her reputation for eclectic, eccentric clothing.

You must check it out!

Unfortunately, after early dinner at the Hyatt, I could only drop in at Westwood for a few minutes before heading to second dinner at Stage in the Honolulu Design Center, which was marking the return of chef Ron De Guzman and debuting a collection of fashion-inspired artwork.
