g r e e n @ f i s h c a k e
Last night I went to an eco-show called "Green" at Fishcake, a furniture and home design boutique in Kaka'ako (Thank you for inviting me, Andrew!). The event was centered around an "organic" theme with exhibits from various local artists, fashion designers and home/food vendors. I love these types of shows... Andrew's sister-in-law, Mele, was actually one of the featured designers and I finally got to see some of her handbags in person!
Vivid, vintage fabrics adorn canvas/leather exteriors to create a handbag that is unique and island chic - Perfect for a beautiful day spent cruising around in paradise. My two favorites: Holoholo "Auntie's Prom Dress" (second column, top bag) and the Kolohe clutch (second column, third bag, lying flat)!
