Recently I hosted the Down the Hatch Lahaina Local Showcase in Maui, Hawaii. It was definitely one of my favorite events to spearhead & host, because working in fashion, so to speak, is something that I have never done before. However, I was able to direct this entire event and then host it. It was such an amazing evening in Lahaina with everyone dressed to the nines, and tons of beautiful women and men strutting the catwalk for some really amazing local vendors in Maui. As a vendor of the showcase (which I was), we were all given a promotional ad by the very talented Vini Pimenta of Shoots Productions in Maui. Above is my ad. I have to admit, the first time I saw it I was a little embarrassed because it seemed very "me, me, me"... but then I realized... I am my brand, and that is me, and I shouldn't be embarrassed to sell myself. Thank you to Vini for telling me that too. ;) All around I walked away from the showcase with a lot of new experience, new friends & colleagues, and this sick video. Thanks again Vini, you da best brah!
