HONOLULU (HI Now) - Kainoa Carlson and McKenna Maduli are in New York to check out New York Fashion Week! Today is the day where two wahine designers from Hawaii make their Runway 7 Fashion debut. Join HI Now as we get an inside look at their amazing show!

The mother-daughter duo, Lotus and Lime, were the first to hit the stage, where Kim and Jade Alexis Ryusaki seamlessly weaved Japanese and Hawaiian culture down the runway. Their taiko drum and kendo demonstration left the audience stunned!

Next to hit the stage was Ola Hou Designs representing Hawai’i Island. They showcased modern designs at the fashion show while breathing new life into aloha wear.

Congratulations on a successful show to Lotus and Lime and Ola Hou Designs!
