Bamboo Sky's 'Gypsy Diaries'
Honolulu Night Market celebrated the dog days of summer on Saturday with another round of pop-up boutique sales, food truck grinds and a "Gypsy Diaries" fashion show by Bamboo Sky.
The look was reminiscent of 1970s boho style: breezy, colorful and casual with displays of sheer print coverups, floral prints, mini dresses and rompers, beautiful lace-embellished pieces and retro floppy hats. Looks that feel comfortable to live in.
What really struck me from my view behind the lens was the models' makeup. My first thought when looking at Miss Hawaii USA Emma Wo was, "Wow, she has more freckles than I thought."
Then I noticed all the models had the same pattern of freckles and bronzer that gave them a beautiful, sun-kissed glow that compels millions of visitors to book trips here. It was a reminder not to take our surroundings for granted, in spite of recent record-high heat.
Drawing applause at the end of the show was Willow Breeden, the daughter of Bamboo Sky owners Tiffany and Shane Breeden. Just like the runway savvy daughters of the Fighting Eel team, Willow looks like she'll be a force to be reckoned with in the near future.
