New fashion exhibits debut
If you're looking for something new to set your sights on, a couple of exhibitions around town focus on different aspects of fashion:
Over at CANON U.S.A. in Ward Plaza, Yi Lin Hu is presenting an exhibition of his fashion photography.
The exhibition is presented in three sections focusing on the intricacies of fashion design, introspective contemporary portraiture and cinematic storylines.
The photos feature the work of designers Beverly Horton, Kini Zamora, Dinko Satta and Joelle Perry, with styling by Jose Santamaria, Reise Kochi and Therese Wahl, and makeup and hair by June Jones, Jake Acedo, Jonathan Freitas, Vanessa Li and Sanna Myers.
The exhibition is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays through March 31. Admission is free. Plaza is at 210 Ward Ave., across from Ward Warehouse.
The University of Hawaii at Manoa’s Historic Costume Museum is hosting an exhibition from its costume collection, daily through Sunday in Miller Hall, Room 112 (Room 101 on Sunday).
Titled “It’s Traditional,” the show was curated by students in the Costume Museum Management class.
In an effort to research and understand textiles used by diverse cultures, students were allowed to select a garment or outfit in the museum reflecting the theme of tradition. In the process, students were able to learn more about the culture behind the garments and to correctly display the items.
Hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. through Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday. Admission is free.
