Ala Moana Center Hosts Haute Fashion Event

Hawaii may not be considered one of the fashion capitals of the world.

But for three days starting Thursday, its largest outdoor mall will play host to a fashion extravaganza like no other.

Ala Moana Center is throwing The Fall Fashion Event, an action-packed weekend of fashion featuring more than 80 in-store events.

Here’s the weekend lineup:

• Thursday, Sept. 8: Fashion’s Night Out starts at 5 p.m. with upscale shops like Dior and Folli Follie serving champagne and dishing exclusive gifts.

• Friday, Sept. 9: Honolulu’s firefighters heat up Centerstage in a runway show featuring fall looks from Tori Richard, Reyn’s and more.

• Saturday, Sept. 10: Award-winning local designer Amos Kotomori hosts hourly shows, starting at noon, featuring the latest haute fashions from Ala Moana Center vendors.

• Sunday, Sept. 11: The final day of the event starts with a Sept. 11 remembrance ceremony, followed by a runway show with the heads of Hawaii’s non-profit organizations.

And if you can’t make it for any of the shows — or you just want to shop instead — you can redeem $250 in receipts for a free red-haute clutch (above).

For more information, visit Ala Moana Center or call (808) 955-9517.
