Fishcake turns runway for a night
Fishcake's retail floor became the runway for seven designers and brands on Nov. 30, during Fashion@hfxishcake, presented by the gallery in collaboration with the Hawaii Fashion Exchange.
Featured were designs by Andy South's Ari South, M33Ms, Rumi Murakami, Language of the Birds, Kaypee Soh, Playback, and Gillia.
I was about five minutes too late to catch the first show, with the colorful prints of Kaypee Soh. Luckily, photographer Travis Okimoto was able to share one of his photos with me to give you an idea of the designer's collection.
There was about a 15-minute wait in between shows, allowing guests to browse and shop the various collections.
I did a lot of shopping, but always ventured back after the shows after seeing how other pieces moved and fit on the body. I dropped so much $$$ that night, and saw a lot of other people shopping, proving that fashion shows work!
