Students at the recent Convocation showed the usual pride, excitement, and stacks of colorful lei. But there was something different about their appearance this year. Spring 2019 was the first class to receive a congratulatory CTAHR stole, handmade by committed students and faculty of the college. The work of the volunteer collective, the “Stole Society,” was spearheaded by FDM but included other departments as well.
For one glamorous and dazzling evening, Honolulu was the fashion capital of the Pacific as UH students and models presented the “next big thing” in clothing design at the 53rd Fashion Show. Models in dresswear, swimwear, and menswear, and the individual collections of three junior FDM designers strutted down the runway showing off this year’s design collections.
Apologies for some misstatements about FDM’s 53rd Annual Fashion Show in last week’s CTAHR Notes—don’t let it keep you from enjoying a “Sweet Escape” on April 28! The show will feature three junior designers, offering exciting swimwear, menswear, and dresswear designs. And showtime is 7:00–9:00 p.m., but doors open at 5:30 for VIPs and 6:00 for the general public.
Enjoy an evening of glamorous haute couture at FDM’s 53rd Annual Fashion Show, featuring three senior designers and a junior ensemble collection! This year’s theme is “Sweet Escape,” and the gorgeous designs will create an atmosphere that lets you do just that. It all happens on Sunday, April 28, at 6:00 p.m. at the Hawai‘i State Art Museum.
