Governor revives fashion awards

By Associated Press

LAST UPDATED: 08:00 a.m. HST, Oct 30, 2013

The governor is reviving fashion awards last given out more than a decade ago.

The awards will be presented in Honolulu today at the end of Hawaii Fashion Month.

Gov. Neil Abercrombie says the monthlong celebration of Hawaii fashion and the fashion awards both provide opportunities to showcase the islands as an international fashion destination.

He says Hawaii's fashion industry has the potential to become a billion dollar industry and further diversify the state's economy.

Awards will be presented in a dozen categories including retail, design, photography, beauty and styling.

Jams World founder David "Pua" Rochlen is being honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award.

Our Governor and fashion - now there's an incongruous connection. But he does have good taste in Aloha shirts.

Thank you , Neil for getting it right. Now let's revive the federal 1921 native Hawaiian's pent up creativity and start yet another multi billion dollar free enterprise addition to our economy. The ali'i trust thing has peaked.
