The Substance and Style of Andy South

There was a private blessing and intimate ceremony commemorating the opening of Andy South’s Atelier and business headquarters on September 15, 2012. The invitation was extended to industry professionals to view the workspace at 12 S. King St.

The courtyard on the groud floor includes a mini fountain, sitting nooks and trees – all in the middle of China town in Honolulu.  The atelier upstairs is breathtaking – with the exposed red brick, prestine wood floors, subtle Asian accents and vintage sewing machines, it’s San Francisco meets New York in a big way. How fitting that this special day also served as an impromptu birthday celebration for Andy South.

Andy’s heart lead her back to Hawaii when she could have easily chosen to work anywhere in the world after Project Runway fame and after South by Andy South collections were sold at Neiman Marcus.  But Andy chooses to build upon her roots in Hawaii.  She mentors her interns, stays true to her asthetic, designs and manufactors her clothing in Hawaii and provides jobs for people in Hawaii.  Keep an eye on Andy’s progress as the Atelier continues to produce fantastic Made in Hawaii quality fashions.

Visits to the Andy South Atelier are by appointment only. Call (808) 744-1167 or visit info@AndySouth.com. To shop online go to shop.AndySouth.com.
