Wahine (Hawaiian for female) dancing hula kahiko on beach.

Sugar Cane Culture Club is honored to collaborate with Kim Taylor Reece for the HANA HOU Hawaii Festival in Switzerland. Our 30-day crowdfunding campaign packages are well worth your support with and extra dose of aloha!

In his research, Kim has traveled with the Hawaii State Foundation of Culture and the Arts, enabling him to study and work with dancers from more than 37 different Pacific Islands. His extensive research of costumes and dances of the early Hawaiians captures the spirit and essence of this ancient ritual.

His unique style has established the visual standards for hula kahiko. As millions encounter Kim’s work everyday, it helps to preserve the hula and enrich lives with his fine art photography.

Kim’s award winning photography has brought him worldwide recognition. Over the years, Kim has received 15 Pele Awards (communication and arts), Print Magazine Awards, Kahili Awards (HVCB), Travel Journalism Awards and National Community Service Awards. His images have been acquired by collectors, dignitaries, and museums internationally. He continues to exhibit his work around the world.

40e6043649392bf039562023bc9f0e7cHe studied art at Long Beach State in California and, because he is color-blind, was told that he should „change majors or be a starving Artist“. He uses it to his advantage in capturing the subtleties of the kahiko in black and white. He uses sepia tone to represent the timelessness of the dance.

Kim has a gallery at Sacred Falls, Oahu, Hawaii. „The beauty in nature of the lush green valley and the striking blue ocean exemplifies what I am trying to portray through my work,“ says the artist of his remote location.

For those who appreciate hula, Kim Taylor Reece has devoted his talents to the celebration of Hawaii’s ancient dance.

Designing Handbags for Awareness


Designing Handbags for Awareness is another blog post snipped for its logo and not for its content. The meager font size prevents me from reposting this substantive posting. First, the original title was „Tools and Designer Handbags.“ The blog’s title was to draw readers to a peculiar twist in Model Minority Fashion Exposition’s journey. Sadly, this blog posting has nothing to do with designer handbags. You can find more information about designer handbags and superbrands in the video below.

After a revealing and informative meeting with the Hawai’i Fashion Month directors, Model Minority Fashion Exposition won’t be promoted on the Hawai’i Fashion Month calendar because MMFE was too similar to their Trade Show. However, I presented MMFE primarily as connecting youth to employment and career development opportunities. It should be noted that the State of Hawai’i funds the Hawai’i Fashion Month, and youth was not being included in the Hawai’i Fashion Month calendar. In spite the news, this meeting provided a renewed sense of purpose.

rsz_tools_&_designer_handbags_blogI approached high schools outside of Honolulu to provide fashion related presentations. Kailua High and Kahuku High were two schools that responded positively to my approach. Bringing professionals to these locations was mainly because it was unlikely these students were aware of Hawai’i Fashion Month and less likely to attend any of the events.

Kalapaki Girl Dezigns is a mother and daughter team, selling unique dresses made of vintage aloha shirts. In Addition to present entrepreneurship to the students, I introduced Individual Retirement Accounts to the students.

The second accomplishment was partnering with the Domestic Violence Awareness Month Committee. It’s possible that the Hawai’i Fashion Month committee couldn’t see the connection between fashion and domestic violence, since Domestic Violence Awareness Month is also in October. The partnership was an ideal fit.

What’s your favorite brand name?

Marketing with Partnerships


This is another blog post too snipped for Beat Kumschick’s logo.

This document is of my other outreach activities, after the Hawai’i Fashion Incubator’s decision not to promote MMFE on their Hawai’i Fashion Month Calendar. The Domestic Violence Action Center is another organization seeking  Promotion on the Hawai’i Fashion Month Calender for activities during Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Both causes happen in October.

I attended a large meeting with the Domestic Violence Awareness Month Committee. Partnering with a worthy cause was the right way to go. You can’t find a group more caring and involved people. October is both the first Hawai’i Fashion Month as well as Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

I recently started teaching Davy to count money. Where he used to live before he came to live with me in ‚Aiea, he was given $10 bills, which was enough for him to buy any lunch plate he wanted. Thus, his coins collected and he never put them to any use. More about Davy in a later blog.

Comment Request: First, I am still beside myself that a Hawai’i State funded organization would not include activities geared for Hawai’i’s youth. The MMFE program would include opportunities for apprenticeships, employment and career development for those interested in the fashion and modeling industries. If any reader can enlighten me on this comment: „Your Fashion Exposition is too much like our (Hawai’i Fashion Incubator’s Hawai’i Fashion Month) Trade Show.“ I understood Hawai’i Fashion Month was about making opportunities available–that’s why it’s funded by the State of Hawai’i. I also understand that the future of Hawai’i is in its school-aged population, who don’t have any voting rights to affect the decisions being made by State-funded agencies.

Screening Documentary at State Capitol


MMFE visited the Hawai’i State Capitol to see the Auditorium on the Chamber Floor. It was a short site-inspection, and as I left, I could hear a coworker of Rodney (Operations Specialist at the Office of the Sergeant-At-Arms) ask, „Done already?“ The Auditorium was what I was expecting and just what I was looking for. I envision documentary screenings at this venue to promote MMFE in the weeks leading up to Hawai’i Fashion Month.

On the Chamber Floor is an Auditorium, Basement Level.

To host a community event in the Auditorium of the State Capitol, you can reserve any day of the week, except on State and Federal holidays. Additionally, you can schedule an events during the business hours of the State Capitol. Another exception is that State officials have priority over scheduling. The good thing about the Auditorium’s availability: most State officials reserve their dates several months in advance.

The Auditorium has a supply of tables for plenty of space along the sides of the room. MMFE is arranging to have local social support nonprofits present to table during the film screenings. No food or drinks allowed in the State Capitol Auditorium. MMFE appreciates your cooperation.

Seating allows for 200 attendees.

There are several lists of fashion documentaries that are „must see“ films. Documentaries, as opposed to movies, give insights behind the fashion scenes. These films range from modeling as a career to major fashion designers to editors to trendsetting photographers. Since no entrance fee is charged, no filmmaker’s permission required for the public film screenings. Check with the laws in your State. This is an opportunity to take part in creating the MMFE Program with your Feedback. Leave a comment and MMFE will invite you as one of the 200 attendees for the fashion documentary screenings.
