High Fashion, Hawai’i Style

ShareThis

Early on there were kapa loin cloths, then palaka work shirts. It wasn’t until the 1930’s, that Hawai’i clothing manufacturers began to design fabrics and fashions for modern life in the Islands. The aloha shirt was born and marketed, and movie stars and public figures jumped on the bandwagon. By the 1950’s, “Made in Hawai’i” was a valuable fashion label and HPR’s Noe Tanigawa reports there’s a push to get it back into the limelight.

The HIFI Coop storefront at Ward Warehouse

The HIFI Coop is on the second level of Ward Warehouse above T&C.  I've been getting non-stop raves for the HIFI fundraiser shift I have with graphic design by Sierra Dew. Check the HIFI website for upcoming classes, which are open to all.
