Opening of HFX Photography Exhibition
Ward Village Shops, 1142 Auahi St.
Starting Nov. 1, when you walk through Ward Village during Hawaii Fashion Month you’ll see stunning images featuring members of the Hawaii Fashion Exchange on display in store windows.
We’re installing 12 huge photographic prints in all — images made by such photographers as Dallas Nagata White, Adam Jung, and Daniela Voicescu, and featuring the work of the many local fashion professionals who make a fashion photograph possible: designers, stylists, models, makeup artists, and assistants.
In conjunction with HFM’s kickoff on Nov. 1, a walking map of the photos, designed by FLUX Magazine, will be available at various storefronts throughout Ward Village and Ward Warehouse to guide you through each of the photos.
