Diamond Head Theatre is currently presenting a play I love, and you can see it live on February 11, 12, 13, 14, 20 and 21. There are both matinees and evening performances, so take your pick.

The theatre is all about safety and COVID precautions. Your temp will be taken and you will be seated at a safe distance from any other patrons. I felt perfectly safe when I attended their lovely Christmas show. I understand that there are still some tickets left for some performances, so do try to see it.  I’ll be at the 3 p.m. performance Saturday, February 13. Hope to see you there!

Sisters Nora and Delia Ephron wrote this insightful and funny set of five monologues, “Love, Loss and What I Wore.” It goes straight to the heart of what our clothes mean to us, and how they bind us to our identity.

Women’s relationships with their closets are often fraught, but just as often funny. Slip on a dress you wore to the prom (if it still fits) and it can transport you back there, awkwardness and all.

A pair of jeans or a tie-dye skirt can be a time capsule of your life.

As a former fashion designer and fashion writer, clothes have always been an important aspect of my life. I treasure them, and the moments they conjure. So I’ve decided to write a series of blogs about special clothes that help tell my life story:

  • maternity dress I had made in Lagos, Nigeria
  • jeans I wore when traveling in a tinker’s caravan through County Cork, Ireland
  • safari skirt my son Duncan gave me for my 40th birthday, when he was 11
  • swing coat I made as a class project in Fashion Technology at Honolulu Community College
  • hand woven silk scarf and vest gifted to me by renowned silk artist Akihiko Izukura

…and more. Please join me on this journey of remembrance. Subscribe to http://www.paularath.com

to receive email messages when a new blog is up. And please share your own closet tales.
