East Meets Beach – Maia Resort Collection

The highlight of the evening was the Sunset poolside fashion show

Posted January 21, 2014 by Amanda Stevens

“Are you a left brain or a right brain type of person?” For clothing designer and board certified physician, Rupal Gohil, the answer is both. The proof of her design talent was showcased at The Modern Honolulu this past Saturday at the private launch of her Maia resort collection. Gohil’s esthetic stems from her Indian heritage and romantic island flair.

The party kicked off with India-meets-Hawaii-style dancing, champagne and henna body art. Guests donned Bollywood-inspired looks in honor of the occasion. The highlight of the evening was the Sunset poolside fashion show. Models circled within the shallow pool, wearing romantic and vibrant chiffon embroidered tunics and embellished tops over bikinis, flowing pants and saris.

Soiree and fashion show by Moana Events, with hair and make-up by Star Allison Lifestyle. You can find the Maia resort collection at, The Modern Honolulu’s Spa, House of Aria and the Fairmont Kea Lani Resort on Maui.

Take a look at some of our favorite moments of the evening:
