“I used to sing and play guitar in an electronic jazz band.”

“Joy and passion have a way of working together to help me navigate my daily choices. Communicating through art and color is my passion, and it is a model of my creations. Bold hues and beautiful shapes dancing in and out of beat, vibrant mismatched patterns against overly saturated tones and oversized glasses with big Polynesian hair that shamelessly shows the world that I’m proud to color myself – that’s my joy.

“I’m a real crime junkie.”

“Surfing has always brought me back to my center. There’s something about jumping into salt water and instantly feeling connected to Mother Nature, which inspires most of my designs. My love for surfing has led me to a lot of amazing things: meeting my husband, traveling to exotic places and meeting locals, which inspired Yireh. The ocean is my joy, and it always comes for me.

“I have a collection of stickers that dates back to 1988 and it continues to grow.”

“Recently I worked on a fashion show with Sugarhigh Lovestoned, a Maui-based fashion label. The collection was inspired by David Bowie, who is my constant inspiration! I’ve been listening to it since I was a teenager. He gave me the confidence to play dress up and make up, as I lip-synced his music in front of a mirror. Music (and musicians) have influenced my life in many ways and I have paid tribute to many of them in my work. In addition to joy, music gives me many forms of emotion and colors that bring my creative stories to life.

Former Director of Development for Model / Parents and Children Together

“My modeling career has taken me to Milan, Paris, London and many other exotic places. Hawai’i is now my home and I love it.

“Fashion for me is a fantasy. In me, there is still this childhood princess who loves to play dress up! It’s not about owning fancy items or designer brands, it’s more of a nice distraction and a creative way for me to “wear” my mood. Sometimes a fancy dress or an elegant costume (with the perfect shoe!) Makes me happy and ignites my youthful spirit.

Lace jacket, $ 7,050, earrings, $ 700, silk scarf, $ 200, available in select Chanel boutiques, (800) 550-0005. Dress, specific to the model.

Andrew Mau

Furniture Artist / Designer, Mau-House

FW20 style trends


“I really like (Microsoft) Excel and create spreadsheets for everything.”

“Many designers, including myself, prefer a more introverted work environment. There is a humility and a self-reflective nature to the creative process behind closed doors, whether it’s designing furniture, jewelry, or stationery. I have the freedom to be myself, to try new things and to make mistakes without anyone documenting my failures. A moment of joy for me is when the viewer sees beyond the physical object and appreciates the dedication to my craft.

Behind the scenes: far from normal

How do you shoot the fall fashion feature film when the must-have accessory of the year is a face mask and Clorox wipes are selling faster than any Gucci? In Mr. Gunn’s words, “Make it work”.

Normally our Fashion Editor-in-Chief Stacey Makiya would fix a sleeve or remove a wrinkle between photos. But, since Emily Jaime was four months pregnant (which didn’t stop her from jumping for joy), Makiya has kept her distance.

In some photoshoots, we had up to nine people on site. This year we’ve narrowed it down to four, including photographer Harold Julian and his assistant, Cesar Roman. Julian used a long lens to capture designer Andrew Mau from around 6 meters away.
