Oh yes...I did it again. Honolulu Night Market invited me back to run rampant for a 2nd time with another runway show. With Earth Day around the corner, the theme for April's Night Market was "Green". I was lucky enough to collaborate with local florist Paiko Hawaii for a one-of-a-kind stage, chandelier, & foliage for incredible hair pieces. A short film of the show is in the works thanks to Reel Creative Instincts; but in the mean time, please enjoy a few snap shots captured by Kelsey Finn.
I wanted the show to be upbeat, flirty, & a true expression of Summer Time fun. I was inspired by the 60's- the music, fashion, beauty, & lifestyle. I sought to keep some of the retro influence but remix it with my own touch. I also wanted everyone involved to have a blast during this whole production! What's more fun than a swimwear show in Hawaii?! Oh wait....a swimwear show full of beautiful girls & handsome beach boys. Don't drool too much everyone! ;)
