Textile curator Sara Oka gave "Project Runway" designer Sandhy Garg a tour of the museum's textile collections.

"Project Runway's" Sandhya Garg, among Kini Zamora's competition during Season 13, was in Honolulu with her family over the Christmas holiday and dropped in to Doris Duke's Shangri La and the Honolulu Museum of Arts.

At the Honolulu Museum of Art, she was able to view the textile collections with textile curator Sara Oka. Read the museum's post about their meeting and shared love of the tactile art form here.

The encounter seems to have left an open door for the possibility of future collaboration and sharing of resources, which would be of mutual benefit for the designer and Hawaii.
