Hawaiian culture, fashion exhibited in London; Milan, Paris next


HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) – Hawaiian culture and fashion are appearing on the runways of international fashion weeks.

Native Hawaiian designer Micah Kamohoalii unveiled 40 pieces of his collection Saturday at London Fashion Week.

The event was scaled back with some shows and parties canceled due to the death of Queen Elizabeth II, although some tracks were allowed to go ahead.

Kamohoalii and his team worked to design new pieces that connected traditional fashion with the unique culture found here on the islands.

“It’s so beautiful that we’re celebrating our bodies, our culture, and our culture is inclusive of everyone and every size, every style, and every color of hair and skin. And that’s what we did, we put Hawaii on the track the way we are,” Kamohoalii said.

After London Fashion Week, Kamohoalii will take his team to Milan and Paris fashion weeks later this month.
