Fashion | Hawaiian Style with Kanoelani Davis of PoMahina Designs

ALOHA! Don’t miss out on an exciting Hawaiian fashion event on Sat., July 13 presented by E Ala E Hawaiian Cultural Center!

In our 2019 “Hawaiian-Style” series, we featured a Hawaiian Laulau Cooking Class with Maui-born, poke-extraordinaire, Chef Ola Miner from Aloha Crew here in the D.C. area. Then in May, we presented another Native Hawaiian, Keone Nunes, a world-renown master tatau (tattoo) culturalist.

Our next event? Saturday, July 13, where we will feature Native Hawaiian, Molokai-born, Kanoelani Davis, owner an creator of PoMahina Designs. The evening will include kau kau (food), panel discussion on blending traditional into our modern `a`ahu (clothing), cultural performances mixed with Polynesian fashions, and music! You’ll have an opportunity to buy PoMahina designer clothing. Pacific Island vendors welcome!

We’re seeking volunteers as follows:

1. Three make-up artists 2. Three hairdressers 3. Two designers to feature either their own designs or those from their culture (Maori and

Samoan) 4. 1 panelist from the Maori culture; 1 from the Samoan culture 5. DJ
