Bliss Lau launches new collection in New York

February 11th, 2011

Click on the photo to see Aaron Ekroth’s video for Bliss Lau.

Hawaii-raised accessories and jewelry designer Bliss Lau sends word that she just presented her first formal collection, “Embraced,” for Fall-Winter 2011 on Feb. 6, a few days ahead of the official New York Fashion Week.

She shared a video of the show, made by Aaron Ekroth, also a local boy who moved to New York. Another of his videos of the photographing of her Spring-Summer 2011 collection lookbook can be viewed at his website, Click on “Documentary Style Videos.”

It looked like a great event, with food, beautiful people in black and ballet dancers as models.

Bliss says many others from Hawaii helped her work the event, including Susan Stanton, and the designer is doing her best “to keep the ‘ohana strong up here in the cold of winter!”

Seeing Bliss’s collection again reminded me that I always meant to pick up one of her body armor/jewelry pieces from Tiffany Tanaka, if she has any left!
