Summer in the City

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! ;)
