Moana Surfrider, A Westin Resort & Spa hosted a fashion show featuring spring and summer looks from Collections of Waikiki to celebrate the start of the Spring 2014 fashion season, as well as the hotel's 113th birthday.

The casual event took place in the open air of the Banyan Courtyard. The Collections of Waikiki comprise more than 60 fashion boutiques within the Moana, the Royal Hawaiian Hotel and the Sheraton Waikiki. Spread out as they are, I didn't realize there are so many! Just goes to show there's a lot of shopping opps beyond the increasing number of Kalakaua monoliths.a

Among shops featured were Tori Richard, Vivienne Westwood, First Break Hawaii, San Lorenzo Brazilian Bikinis, Pashma, Reyn Spooner, Volcom, Newt Hawaii, and more.

Smaller showcases took place on Kalakaua Avenue fronting the hotel, attracting the attention of passersby who were rewarded with prize balloons that could be redeemed for free gifts from the participating boutiques.

Na Hoku Hanohano award winner Kamuela Kahoano also performed for a portion of the fashion show.
