It’s always refreshing when a boutique owner strives to support made in Hawaii clothing, accessories and decor – and succeeds. It would seem especially difficult in Waikiki, where it can be really hard to tell what’s truly made in Hawaii and what is an imitation.  Aloha ‘Aina in the Royal Hawaiian Center is among the rare boutiques in this category and is about to celebrate it’s second year anniversary. Congratulations!

To celebrate, Aloha ‘Aina is holding an anniversary party with complimentary pupu, wine and champagne this Friday, October 19, from 3 to 8 p.m. Shoppers will receive a 10 percent discount on everything in the boutique.

From the Tiare Hawaii Daydreams Collection.

Several local designers will be on hand at the party to meet with customers and help them style a new look for the new season. Among them:

  • Noelani  Love of Noelani Designs from Haleiwa, who will unveil a new design from her jewelry line that will be showcased exclusively at this event.
  • Jane Hoskins  of Tiare Hawaii, who hails from Sunset Beach on the North Shore, will launch her fall collection.
  • Saori Santos, designer of Honolulu-based Gillia, will introduce her pre-fall/spring collection and take pre-orders during the event.
  • Mari Diller, creator of MauiMari Ocean Jewelry, will fly over from Haiku to debut an exclusive collection.

From the Tiare Hawaii Desert Collection.

Beginning at 5 p.m., DJ K-Smooth will play music and Naia Amwaj will perform belly dances from 5:30 to 5:45 p.m. The party is free and open to the public.

Find Aloha ‘Aina at Royal Hawaiian Center, Building C, level 2, next to Island Vintage Coffee. Phone: 924-4333.
