Taking a Dive into Hawaii ’s Fashion Scene

On the heels of national recognition of Hawaii’s ability to incubate designers into full-on style stars with Kini Zamora’s third place finish on Project Runway, Hawaii Fashion Month is set to make its own splash. A whole month dedicated to fashion in one area might seem like a lot but, all November long, a variety of events will take place such as the first-ever Honolulu Fashion Week, pop-up shops, panels and presentations. What’s even better is the backdrop, beautiful scenario and exquisite clothing that’s synonymous with Hawaii Fashion Month.

The month aims to bring attention to up-and-coming and stalwart designers making waves in the Hawaiian and worldwide fashion scene. Unlike other fashion weeks where runway shows are the main focus, Hawaii Fashion Month hones in on some of the most important people involved in the fashion industry today: the community. It goes without saying that bloggers have become some of the most important people in the fashion community; they help to get new designers names out to the public, and they give the world a bird’s eye view into fashion that they might not otherwise get. Hawaiian bloggers are sure to make a showing during Hawaiian Fashion Month. Here’s who we expect will pop up at various events:

Summer Shiigi of Summer Style

Summer is a stylist, personal shopper, blogger and all-around Renaissance woman by anyone’s standards. She’ll surely be out at various events throughout Hawaii Fashion Month. We can’t wait to see what she wears (and which events she styles).
