This is NOT your typical fashion show! Featuring native artists, cultural practitioners and designers.

Launched in Honolulu in 2006, the MAMo Wearable Arts Show is a component of PAʻI Foundation’s Maoli Arts Movement (MAMo). This wearable art fashion show celebrates Native Hawaiian designers in fabric, clothing, and accessories, in terms of cultural motifs, in a way that makes it more than just a runway fashion show. Many traditional Hawaiian patterns and designs; in kapa, weaving, weaponry and tools, tattoo and adornment; take their visual clues from nature. This fashion event grows in popularity each year, so don’t miss this one-of-a-kind experience!
