Nakeʻu Awai Designs is honored to be featured in Honolulu Magazine’s coverage of the recent Mu‘u at the Museum event held on January 7, 2023, at the Queen Emma Summer Palace. Honolulu Magazine began as Paradise of the Pacific, a magazine commissioned under King David Kalākaua to promote local business and tourism in the continental United States.

The article called “Gorgeous Mu‘umu‘u Worn at Mu‘u at the Museum 2023” speaks to the founding of Mu‘umu‘u Month in 2014 and Oʻahu’s biggest event hosted by the nonprofit Daughters of Hawaiʻi, Mu‘u at the Museum. Nakeʻu Awai Designs was featured as part of this year’s festivities.

The article has a wonderful gallery encapsulating images of new and vintage muʻumuʻu from local and Hawaiian designers, including many from Nakeʻu Awai Designs.
