January is Muʻumuʻu Month and we’re celebrating by sitting down with a few of our favorite muʻu collectors! Our journey begins on the island of Kauaʻi with Shannon Hiramoto, owner of MachineMachine and founder of Muʻumuʻu Month, a month-long challenge to wear a muʻumuʻu everyday!
Next we hop over to Honolulu to take a peek at fashion enthusiast, Meleana Estes, collection of rare and classic muʻu for tips on how to elevate your vintage pieces with a modern twist.
For our final stop we head over to the home of Janu Cassidy, lifelong collector and Owner of Radio Hula Vintage. Janu’s collection of one-of-a-kind thrifted finds filled with bold patterns and vibrant color showcases the best of the 50s, 60s and 70s!
Our biggest mahalo to our fellow muʻu lovers for allowing us to take a special look into their collections and further deepening our appreciation of Hawaii’s most beloved garment - the muʻumuʻu!
