Last year I was honored to be invited to a private showing of a fashion documentary, “The Tents,” presented by Lynne O’Neill.

Lynne is prominently featured in “The Tents” in exclusive behind the scenes footage and interviews. Now you can meet her during a special showing of the documentary presented by the Hawaii Fashion Incubator (Hifi) and Interisland Terminal’s R&D.

“The Tents” will be screened Thursday, May 3, at R&D, located at 691 Auahi Street. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the documentary begins at 7 p.m., with coffee and light refreshments provided by Hifi and R&D.

Tickets are $20 ($15 for Hifi members) and can be purchased online at http://interislandterminal.tix.com/Event.asp?Event+470271.

All proceeds go to R&D and Hifi. Guests will be entered in a raffle for R&D and Hifi merchandise.

Lynne will participate in a Q&A session immediately following the screening. During a typical New York Fashion Week, Lynne may produce up to 15 fashion shows for clients such as Vivienne Tam, Perry Ellis, Herve Leger, BCBG Max Azria and Billy Reid. Lynne has also been a fashion show consultant for TV (“Gossip Girl”) and movies (“Sex and the City”), during which she was portrayed by Margaret Cho.

Lynne, a local girl who resides most of the time in New York, has a home in Honolulu and she and her husband Bobby spend as much time as possible here.

This screening offers an ideal opportunity to see an outstanding fashion documentary with like minded people, offering lively and informed discussion afterwards.



The Silent and Moving Center will be holding a
sidewalk sale this weekend, Saturday, April 28 and Sunday, April 29, including 20% off Queen of Hearts. They will also be adding a new line to their collection called ompure.com. Boutique buyer Heeraa Savevich wrote that it’s “Similar to Queen of Hearts but a much more vibrant
color palette… also made in Bali… the colors (we carry) are not on the website yet but beautiful fuschia, turquoise and jades… yum..”





Those who love sewing their own clothes and DIY projects flock to the annual TEMARI Bolts of Fabric & Fun event. There are dozens of booths offering items you can seldom find anywhere else: bolts of unusual fabrics, kimono, sewing notions, beads, new works by TEMARI artisans and clearance prices on TEMARI’S  samples and supplies.

It’s Saturday, April 28, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. (opens at 8 a.m. for TEMARI members) in the Honpa Hongwanji Social Hall, beneath the main temple at 1727 Pali Highway.
