“Though this was a small show, our models rocked Versace windows as live mannequins.  Got to admit the energy was palpable”! – Danne

General manager Patrick Gey welcomed host Princess Elizabeth Kawananakoa of Eurocinema Hawai’i for the event that also served as a fundraiser for the organization. Ten percent of sales through Friday will benefit Eurocinema Hawai’i.

It’s been so long since we’ve had a boutique opening celebration of this magnitude that I felt quite underdressed. It’s so easy to slip into that, “Eh, it’s only Hawaii attitude,” when I should have known better, considering the dapper Gey knows how to throw a party and had an extra assist from international über stylist and production designer Dean Christopher, who said he’s back home to stay.   Courtesy – Star Advertiser

Haute couture collections of Chanel and Christian Dior, and prêt-à-porter collections of Hermès, Sonia Rykiel and Jean-Paul Gaultier for this black-tie attire were definitely the stand outs.  Music by the Honolulu Symphony enhanced atmosphere beautifully.  A portion of the proceeds benefited The Honolulu Academy of Arts, now called the Hawaii Museum, The Hawaii Theatre Center, and The Contemporary Museum.

“Danne could you please help a friend of mine?”

“She’s coordinating a Guess fashion show that’s only 10 days from today. She can be very demanding at times, but is good at what she does.  It will be fine as long as you guys are able to work together. Can you put together some stylists to make it happen? Will you do it?”
