Afterschool Art Hawaii
On Friday, June 7th, 2013 at 6 PM the Honolulu Fashion Invitational (http://HonoluluFashion.LawrenceBlake.com) will feature exciting runway presentations from Honolulu's favorite rising fashion designers hand picked by popular wardrobe stylist Summer Style Hawaii (www.SummerStyleHawaii.com). Local artists including photographers, painters, graphic designers, and sculptors, will proudly share their recent work during creative gallery presentations. Live music performances, special speeches from fashion industry veterans, and delicious cocktails will allow guests to intimately discover the artists of Honolulu. Scheduled to take place at one of Honolulu's largest art venues, The FIX Sports Lounge and Nightclub, the Honolulu Fashion Invitational will benefit arts education programs for at-risk Hawaii youth through the efforts of Afterschool Art (www.AfterschoolArtHawaii.org).
During the event, attendees will chose two fashion designers and two artists to receive the events grand prize -- a one-year public relations contract with communications firm Lawrence Blake Group Int'l, retails sales opportunities within the Hawaiian islands and abroad, and an editorial spread in a local magazine featuring their work.
"My personal philosophy: Style isn't just what you wear, it's a reflection of who you are. I've found a love for style in the vibrancy and energy of our island city and especially in the introduction of exclusive boutiques. My affair with fashion only grew after living in trendy California, and I fawned over the sophistication and excitement of LA shopping. Now I'm back in Hawaii with over 10 years of experience in retail and buying. I seek to create and express your inner style and offer a new level of customer service to your ultimate shopping experience. I work in collaboration with a variety of premiere local designers and boutiques to provide an eclectic collection delivered to your doorstep. Enjoy the latest new arrivals, including some exclusive designs for Summer Style, hand-picked to achieve your maximum style potential." Summer Shiigi, founder Summer Style Hawaii.
Afterschool ART was founded by Dr. Bob Grossmann in 2004, after having the opportunity to be briefed by staff from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other public health agencies, when he served as a Fellow for then Secretary of Health, Donna Shalala (1995-1996). He has found that youth respond to programs that bring quality art supplies and professional artists to where the youth-at-risk live and learn. Dr. Grossmann has confirmed to speak at the 2013 Fashion Front Awards Hawaii, discussing the vitality of community support for arts education programs for Hawaii at-risk youth.
"Afterschool Art helps to ease the burden of tight budgets in elementary, middle and highschool
systems by creating and funding art programs for the students. Afterschool Art's programs create
opportunities for expression, creativity, and thoughtfulness about the world through the learning and
making of art." Travis Sasaki, University of Hawaii art student.
