New Organik Clothing at Whole Foods Kahala

Under the roof of Whole Foods Market Kahala in the Whole Body section, you'll find several styles of men's & women's Organik merchandise. New Spring '09 styles were dropped off the other day and they are moving fast. Choose from tees, long sleeves & zip up hoodies. After this sells out, it will be time for Summer '09 Organik Threads From the Earth collection to drop near the end of May.

Fashionista's Market | Maui Westin | Apr 18 2009

Fashionista's Market did it again, but this time on Maui. This designer sales event was started on Oahu by Alyssa Fung and her sister. Tons of money spending girls go to her events every month and when I was personally invited to join them on Maui who could say no. Lots of Fashionista's marketing went into planning this 1 day event with newspaper blurbs, radio ads, interviews, flyers and everything in between. Alyssa was even on Maui for 2 weeks leading up to the event on April 18, not to mention her trips to L.A. in between.
I roomed with the only guys on the trip. I was the newbie and met all new faces. Everywhere we rolled I was the new guy. The Friday night pre-party was at Lulu's in Lahaina where I got schooled at billiards by a girl from Guam. Saturday morning was crazy! The first Fashionista's Market diehard was on line at 6:30 am to claim her gift prize bag. Fashion show first, followed by shopping madness from 12 - 6 PM. Then, cleaned up got dinner and drinks with my new friends from Oahu and beach party after. Sunday included breakfest with the new friends and pool party with cocktails. After a few hours of chillaxing, I had to clean up and meet with boutiques in the afternoon..Long story short. I missed my evening flight back to Kona, but got new Organik dealers on Maui with product in stores on May 15. This was the line of fashionistas at 10 AM with 2 more hours to go.

Fashion show anticipation

Hawaii RED Magazine...features Organik. Online issue live today!

I got a sneak peek of the April 2009 issue of Hawaii RED Magazine this weekend at the Green Style on the Big Isle fashion event in Kona. Funny thing is that the cover shot and most of the issue was photographed on location in Kona at the NELHA solar powered building where the Green Style event took place. It was destined for Organik to be in the latest issue because that's where it all started.
Here's the link:

Green Style on the Big Isle...live in Kona

Natural Energy Lab NELHA was the site for the Green Style on the Big Isle Eco Market and Fashion Event presented by Hawaii Fashion Incubator and Hawaii RED Magazine.
Teamwork is what made this first-ever event on the Big Island a huge success. This was an action-packed, fist pumpin weekend with a panel discussion at Greendrinks on April 10, eco-market, fashion show and Ecolounge post party on April 11. Not to mention, this was the kick off for the month long Kona Earth Festival. This is how we roll!

Ecolounge was the after party at the Mixx Bistro with drinks, dancing and DJ Unit:E and Rhythmstar presented by Organik.
