In-person event set for Aug. 17-19 at the Blaisdell Exhibition Hall with a one-hour TV special to follow in September –
“Thrifting has always been one of our favorite mother-daughter past times, so we’re very excited to collaborate with Goodwill Hawaii to produce this fashion show, especially knowing that it’s supporting an excellent cause,” said Kim Ryusaki Marrero, matriarch, owner and co-designer of Lotus & Lime. “For this year’s show, we have chosen the theme ‘Celebrating Diversity’ which is inspired not only by our own multi-cultural background, but by all diverse people here in Hawaii. Through the evolution of fashion, style, and genres we will celebrate those influences and expressions throughout our show,” Ryusaki added.
Event sponsorships and individual tickets to attend that opening night Gala and Fashion Show on Thursday, August 17 are available for purchase and feature a special three-course dinner menu prepared by Chef Russell Siu of 3660 On the Rise.
