On November 18, 2015 Manaola Yap presented his second independent fashion show for over 250 guests at the Honolulu Design Center. MANAOLA: The Runway Shows presented ready to wear and couture collections incorporating the Honolulu Design Centerʻs Cupola Theatre, Amuse Wine Bar and Stage Restaurant in 3 tiers of service.
VIP Fashion Dinner guests dined on an exclusive meal in collaboration with Stage Restaurant, offering a 4-course dinner and wine pairing inspired by MANAOLA’s new original prints. A special pre-show performance by Starr Kalahiki and Irie Love greeted guests in Amuse Wine Bar before the runway shows, with an on-site pop up shop following the presentation in the Ice Garden.
