Tips on achieving signature style
Style guru William Squire will be in town to talk about achieving "Your Signature Style" during Ala Moana Center's "Shop a Le'a" event through the weekend.
He'll be at the Nordstrom Cosmetic Tailgate Party, from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. tomorrow, and will be available to talk about 2008 fashion trends and answer style questions from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. tomorrow through Monday at Nordstrom's Chanel Makeup Studio.
Squire, a Hollywood makeup artist, agent and author of "The Model's Workbook," devised Your Signature Style with model and actress Lisa Dean to help women discover the makeup, clothing and accessories that will enhance their individual beauty.
Among the subjects often raised by participants are how to get the most for your money when shopping for clothes, how to mix and blend makeup correctly and how to transform your look from day to night.
Leather is canvas for Al Furtado art
The colorful imagery of Honolulu artist Al Furtado is making its debut as wearable art at Sandal Tree, Ala Moana Center.
Two of Furtado's best-loved images, "Keiki Dance Class" and "Shave Ice," were chosen to start a line encompassing sandals, handbags and small leather goods, representing a collaboration between Sandal Tree and ICON leather.
ICON's unique printing process permanently bonds images to the leather, creating a lasting replica of the art.
Meet Furtado, who will be available to sign his pieces, during the collections debut from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. Shoppers can also sign up throughout March to win a giclee that has been hand-enhanced and signed by Furtado. The winners will be announced on April 1, Sandal Tree's 25th anniversary.
