On Saturday evening, designers will converge at Kakaako Agora for an innovative design and retail event, Hidesigncommune. At this inaugural event, 19 new and established Hawaii designers will feature their collections in a fashion and product show. The event is free, takes place from 6-9:30 pm, and is part of June Kaboom, a month-long initiative that showcases public arts programs in Our Kaka‘ako.
“Hidesigncommune represents a coming together of Hawaii’s design community,” said director Reise Kochi. “What makes this different from any other marketplace is the space and the presentation itself. Each designer will have a clean palette space to sell and showcase their designs, giving shoppers a modern and unique showroom-type of retail experience.”
Organizers plan on making this an annual event that will cultivate engagement and interaction among designers, foster growth for small businesses, and increase public awareness in local design and fashion.
