You’ve heard of dinner theater, well, last night Manaola showcased two collections during a VIP dinner and fashion experience at Honolulu Design Center. The first collection featuring contemporary aloha wear incorporated Manaola’s signature ‘ohe kāpala’ hand-stamped, wood technique with patterns inspired by nature.
The second collection turned on the edge, and incorporated bold silhouettes, with a strong emphasis on sheer fabrics and leather, mixed with a luxurious look and feel.
At the end of the evening, Manaola apparel and accessories were offered at a pop-up, where there was a long line of people waiting to get in.
