What’s next for “Project Runway” contestant Kini Zamora? The answer will be revealed on the runway during Hawaii Fashion Month when he and business partner Dean “Dinko” Satta debut the new spring/summer 2015 collection of their eponymous line, KINIandDINKO.
Presented by Hawaii Fashion Incubator, Zamora’s show will happen on Friday, Nov. 7 at 7:30 p.m. at the Hawaii Convention Center Exhibition Hall as part of HONOLULU Fashion Week.
“Dinko and I are extremely excited to be part of Hawaii Fashion Month, and this is the perfect time and place to showcase our new line,” said Zamora. “Hawaii has given us so much inspiration in our designs and I’m especially grateful for the aloha and support during ‘Project Runway’.”
Zamora and Satta gained much of their inspiration for the collection from their recent experiences visiting New York City. The derivative of the architectural life left the designers in awe.
“Through the shadows of endless buildings and high rises, there seemed to always be a light shining through, which is symbolic of the surge of business, publicity, ‘Project Runway,’ and aloha, all mixed into one. A challenge and a blessing, a darkness and a light,” added Zamora. “THIS is fashion, this is KINIandDINKO.”
