An Oceanfront Fashion Affair x Hawai’i Fashion Month

Oct29

For those of you that are unaware, November is the official Hawai’i Fashion Month (HFM), a community-driven initiative of the Hawaii Fashion Incubator (Hifi) and the State of Hawaii Department of Business, Economic Development and Tourism. HFM includes a month-long calendar of events intended to promote all aspects of Hawaii’s fashion industry, to raise awareness of Hawai’i as a unique, creative and competitive fashion destination while bringing sustainable growth to the industry that comprises design, manufacturing, retail, art, education and more, thus promoting locally made fashion products and services that help to raise awareness and showcase our ongoing commitment to “Buy Aloha, Give Local.”

Collections of Waikiki is proud to be a partner with Hawai’i Fashion Month, and as such, we would like to present: An Oceanfront Fashion Affair, two fashion show events on Wednesday, November 5th.

Think about it…Where else can you witness a premier fashion show on prime beach front real estate, with Diamond Head as a backdrop? The majority of the looks and styles will feature local designers or products. We hope to see you there!

The event is open to the public, and is free of charge. See the below for details.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Feb14

If any of you happy Hawaii-goers happen to be on property today, Honolulu Chocolate Company at the Sheraton Waikiki has large (and when I say large, I mean LARGE) freshly-dipped chocolate strawberries on sale, today only!

They’re super delish!

Tis’ the season!

Aloha and Happy Holidays! Here in Hawaii, we also say mele kalikimaka, or Merry Christmas!

The weather already seems a tad bit cooler and Christmas decorations are out and up in full grandeur. Few things bring a smile to my face like seeing ornaments on trees and hearing Christmas music play in public areas. It really makes me feel festive.

Here are some pictures of the holiday decorations we have up.


Our Santa sand sculptures have been a hit at the Sheraton Waikiki, and Honolulu Chocolate Company always does a fantastic holiday spread no matter the holiday. Many customers ask to purchase the ornaments and decorations actually used in their storefront display (which they actually do sell in addition to fabulous chocolates).


The stately Christmas trees (yes, there are more than one, though they are not pictured here) are well-flocked in white and pink, fully resplendent of the grandeur of the Pink Palace of the Pacific. A toned-down but nonetheless luxurious Christmas tree rests inside Maui Divers Jewelry Luxury Collection.


I always wondered how they get the Christmas tree inside the actual hotel lobby at the Moana Surfrider. I mean, the front entrance to the hotel is only so large! Next year, I vow to try and witness how it is really done.


The Sheraton Princess Kaiulani and its Kalakaua storefront shops have also outdone themselves with nutcracker and other Christmas decor. In addition, choirs and other holiday entertainment is happening on an almost nightly basis!


The gingerbread fabrication at the Sheraton Princess Kaiulani is also another sight to behold. Most people build gingerbread houses. This is a gingerbread CITY. A city, people! There’s a train, a circus, different mansions…

Tis’ the season, indeed.

Summer Stamp Event!

Aug12

This truly was a wonderful summer in Hawaii. We had some amazing south shore waves, great weather, more than a few parades and lots and lots of happy guests. I don’t want it to end, but nothing stays the same forever, and I’m sure Fall and Winter will be equally entertaining.

Before we say so long to summer though, I wanted to let you know about one last event happening at Collections of Waikiki right now. To participate, you don’t even need to spend a single dollar.

I’ve attached these stamp cards to the cover of all our COLLECTIONS guides, found in the four Starwood Waikiki hotel rooms, in the public areas, and on the street stands of Waikiki. All you have to do is collect the 4 hotel-specific stamps and turn in the completed card to any Starwood hotel concierge for a free prize. That almost sounds too easy, doesn’t it?

Well, each hotel is host to a specific stamp, and one cannot complete the stamp card without first visiting all the stamp locations. But the stamps are easy to find. In fact, I’ll tell you where they are right now! They are at:

Sheraton Waikiki, Link@Sheraton COLLECTIONS teak rack
The Royal Hawaiian, Hula-la COLLECTIONS teak rack
Moana Surfrider, Beachhouse at the Moana COLLECTIONS teak rack
Princess Kaiulani, Front Desk COLLECTIONS teak rack

Once completed, turn in the card for your choice of a free chocolate caramel turtle from Honolulu Chocolate Company, a free milk-chocolate-dipped shortbread cookie from The Cookie Corner, or a sample cup of coffee from Peet’s Coffee & Tea.

BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE…

If you turn in the complete card along with $150 or more proof of purchase receipts from Collections of Waikiki tenants, you’ll also get this limited edition Collections of Waikiki eco bag!

Event ends August 25, or until supplies last!
