MAMo: Wearable Art Show, June 17
Maoli Arts Month at the MACC: Wearable Art Show will take place Saturday, June 17, 2017 at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center, beginning at 7:30 p.m. with a designer’s trunk show beginning at 6 p.m.
The Maui event returns for a fourth consecutive year, presented by Maui Arts & Cultural Center in collaboration with the PA‘I Foundation.
The event will take place in the Yokouchi Pavilion, featuring the work of contemporary island designers, whose creations extend from comfortable to traditional to cutting-edge to downright fantastical.
The wearable art show celebrates Hawaiian design in fabric and clothing – specifically in terms of cultural motif-in a way that makes it more than just a runway fashion show. Many traditional Hawaiian patterns and designs-in kapa and weaving, weaponry and tools, tattoo and adornment-take their visual clues from nature will be showcased.
This year’s event showcases creations by Kanoelani Davis/PōMahina Designs, Anna Kahalekulu/Kūlua Designs, Kawika Lum-Nelmida, Kehaulani Nielson/Kahulale’a Designs and Koa Johnson/ KOJO Couture.
Emcee’s for the event will be Vicky Takamine and Robert Cazimero and there will also be a special guest appearance from Ari South of Project Runway.
