It’s hard to imagine three more seemingly mismatched designers sharing the runway: Alfred Shaheen, Andy South and Reyn Spooner. yet each holds a special place in the hearts of Hawaii people, so why not?

The fashion show, dubbed “An Evening of HI Fashion,” pays tribute to aloha wear designer Alfred Shaheen and officially kicks off Bishop Museum’s latest show.

Saturday, November 17

6 – 9 p.m.

Bishop Museum, 1525 Bernice Street

$75 Non-members and $55 members

Purchase tickets online at: bishopmuseum.org/hifashion or call 847-8296.

The show will allow attendees to revel in the music, food and fashion of the ’50s and ’60s. Even the cocktails will have a vintage vibe. The food tastings are by Hale ‘Aina and Cafe Pulama.

The show will take place under the stars at Bishop Museum with the elegant Hawaiian Hall as the backdrop.

In addition, in what may be a once in a lifetime opportunity, there will be a silent auction of original Shaheen garments.

Following the show will be a visit to the museum’s newest exhibit: “HI Fashion: The Legacy of Alfred Shaheen,” featuring more than 200 of the designer’s most famous prints.
