In a delightful mix of artfulness and humor, Galerie 103 will present Kaua‘i, Oahu and Mainland artists joining their creative forces for reIMAGINED PAPERWORKS, a unique art and fashion event during the Kukui‘ula Art of Fashion Art Walk June 13.
“With the great success of our fashion show last year, we are excited to continue this on as an annual tradition of ART reFASHIONED,” Galerie 103 owner Bruna Stude said.
The inspiration for this year’s art and fashion event was paper doll fashion on porcelain dolls. The materials used are “reincarnated” paper shopping bags, cardboard, and odds and ends
Last year’s runway featured designs created from buckets full of bottle caps, a bucket, hundreds of teabags, cardboard, paper, magazines, bicycle tires, tape, rope, bubble-wrap, plastic bottles, vinyl and much more.
PowerHound, a Kaua‘i group formed in 2005 with the mission of playing music differently, will again improvise and create a sonic landscape for the evening.
The event will be at The Shops at Kukui‘ula at 2829 Ala Kalanikaumaka in Po‘ipu.
