Meet Shaesby Scott
Stop by the Designer Jewelry department at Neiman Marcus from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. tomorrow and Saturday for a look at what's new in jewelry.
Designer Shaesby Scott will be showing his collection, which reflects his background as a sculptor and furniture designer whose primary medium was steel.
While living abroad in Rio de Janeiro, Scott embraced the Brazilian custom of adorning the body with art and discovered a passion for jewelry, a natural progression in his career, permitting him to make his sculptures wearable.
Also at Neiman, Shu Uemura principal artist J.P. McCary and atelier artist and education manager Misumi Kitano will be available in Cosmetics for personal consultations from 11:45 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. tomorrow and 10:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Saturday, to help customize their looks using Shu Uemura's innovative color products.
Split Obsession will host a trunk show on Saturday featuring hand-worked shirts by Reincarnation Hawaii's Allison Izu Nagato and swimwear by Marylea Conrad of Melia Conrad.
The event will take place from noon to 3 p.m. at the Koko Marina Shopping Center boutique that is home to clothing, toys and art. For more information, call 395-3380.
Crazy for Earth
Earth Day has come and gone, but that's no reason to stop thinking about all the problems facing the planet.
Crazy Shirts intends to keep the dialogue going the other 364 days of the year through a series of environmental statement-making T-shirts.
Crazy Shirts fans can select from two current designs conceived by creative director and former Disney commercial artist, Eric Robison. One features a picture of the planet with the slogan "Save Our Planet" or "Global Warming Sucks!" and one carries the slogan "Stay Cool" and shows a polar bear floating on an iceberg.
The company hopes the shirts will raise awareness and encourage people to take steps toward environmental conservation and sustainability.
The shirts are available in men's and women's sizes and retail for $24 to $29. Other items include stickers, hats and messenger bags.
The shirts come with a tag that offers tips on how to be eco-friendly, and Crazy Shirts will donate a portion of the sales from all of its global-warming products to the Hawaii Natural Energy Institute.
Look for the shirts at Crazy Shirts locations or at crazyshirts.com.
Fit for the Cure
Wacoal will be hosting a Fit for the Cure event during the launch of Wacoal Promise from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. tomorrow at Macy's Ala Moana.
Women will be able to receive a complimentary bra fitting in a Wacoal, DKNY Underwear or Donna Karan Intimates bra from a Wacoal fit specialist, while helping to support breast cancer research. For every woman who participates, Wacoal will donate $2 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure for breast cancer research and outreach programs. Wacoal also will donate an additional $2 for every Wacoal, DKNY Underwear or Donna Karan Intimates bra purchased at the event.
Research shows that eight out of 10 women are wearing the wrong-size bra. Women should be professionally fitted for a bra once a year to ensure their bra size has not changed as a result of fluctuations in their body.
Also, sign up for a monthly breast self-exam reminder while you're there. A monthly self-examination helps women detect breast abnormalities at an early stage and is part of the "Wacoal Promise" to help women stay committed to their health.
