Two years ago Florencia Arias-Nordstrom launched her own label, Florencia Arias Hawaii, featuring sexy, casual, effortless clothing that’s perfect for Hawaii fashionistas.
This month she opened her studio in Chinatown, offering her entire collection of sexy body-skimming dresses and separates, in addition to exclusive designs and finds from her native Argentina.
It’s the fabric that sets Florencia Arias apart from other labels. Her clothing is made from very soft, high-end modal fabric that’s both comfortable and stretchy. It’s similar to rayon — thin and drapey but clingy in all the right areas. And everything in her line is made in Hawaii.
Florencia Arias, 1161 Nuuanu Ave. near Mark’s Garage. Regular hours: noon-5 p.m. Wednesday, 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, or by appointment. (808) 384-9039.
