Things are heating up for the summer, and the fashion show on our main stage this month will be a treat! Coordinated and styled by local up-and-coming designer Tyson Joines, along with local fashion boutiques Bamboo Sky, Basique Threads, and I AM, these looks are cool, classy and very modern.
“I was really inspired by Alexander Wangs Spring/Summer 2013 fashion show during New York Fashion Week, said Tyson. “His attention to detail is immaculate. He presented a very simple yet modern collection. My show is paying homage to that collection by featuring very subtle elements Wang is now known for. Keep an eye out for cut-out detailing on clothes, “peek-a-boo” elements such as sheer overlays, and mesh garments as well.”
Here’s a sneak preview of the styles, courtesy of Tyson and photographer Dallas Nagata White. Get there early to grab a seat for this memorable fashion show, happening on the Main Stage at 8 p.m.!
Since 2010 on Kauai, See that Fly has recycled more than 6,000 t-shirts and turned them into popular bags that work for carrying groceries or at the farmers market as a beach bag or work carryall. Each shirt used on the interior is different, dyed and then new prints from local artists are silk screened on the outside, resulting in a one-of-a-kind product. See that Fly will be sharing a booth at the night market with one of their featured local artists from Kauai, Michi, whose mermaid print adorns one of the line’s top-selling bags. Recently See that Fly added dresses to their line — cute & comfortable, they are the perfect beach dress.
