Andres Aquino’s past events have set the fashion standards and have been covered internationally by all the large media & press outlets from around the world. And the Fall 2011 Couture Fashion Week, was a personal journey for me, as it was covered by yours truly “me” Tina Quizon. The 2011 Fall show was spectacular, not only because of the designs, but more importantly the people, and being that I was the only media source from the Islands of Hawaii there to cover this event, I had no idea that I would feel the “Aloha Spirit” which represents our Hawaiian Island so far away from home, but in all places “New York City”. But here it was,and I felt it, during Couture Fashion Week, with meeting, interviewing and working with so many talented designers, models, media & professionals in the fashion industry. And I can’t help but to reflect and to mention the impact it made on me, how fabulous it was to see all media partners welcoming each other, collaborating and helping each other to create there best works, with all the video, print and internet coverage, making this for me, truly a first class world event, as Andres and the media professional reminded everyone “to jump in get their best shot, video, story and to get our work done.” I carried the Couture Fashion Week’s stories and examples back with me, here to Honolulu, and have shared it with many here in Hawaii and I feel it continues to make me a better Journalist and TV Producer. Because it was that energy, love and caring for each other, and that we all had a job to do. Together we all experienced a remarkable inspiration of energy showcasing the Designer, the Models, Hair & Makeup and all the backstage support and sponsors that make a tremendous impact on the fashion world and consumers. Andres Aquino, the Couture Fashion week creator & the NYC Media outlets had welcomed me with VIP access,so much grace and warmth, showing that the Aloha spirit is alive even in New York City, Mahalo Andres (thank you) again for making the 2011 event so memorable. I am sure this year will be even more exciting, trend setting and memorable.
