Back to School and return of Kapa Mag's WE Peace Day Fashion Festival

First and foremost our thoughts and prayers are with all of you on Maui...what we can do to help; read KHON2 or We are thinking of all who are being affected.

Secondly, mahalo for taking the time to read through and keep up to date with Kapa Mag. We appreciate your support.

Our 2023 summer actually started off with a bang, with our services being extended to Maui talent as we worked out of the Maui Photo Hub in Kahului.

As summer nears its end with a new season in sight, is anyone else finding themselves reminiscing on the past few months already? The sunny days, the beach adventures, the summer travels, the new summer jobs, Kapa Mag trainings, Kapa Mag fashion shows…you know, all of the summer fun!

While we’re sad to see the summer go, what’s next is always exciting and what has past should always be looked back upon with nostalgic memories. Here at Kapa Mag, we had quite the eventful and lively summer! The upcoming 2023 Kapa Mag publication coming in September and being distributed at the WE Peace Day Fashion festival, will connect you with and highlight local fashion entrepreneurs and designers and up-and-coming Hawaii based individuals and businesses we worked with this past season and prior. Mahalo to Brit of Sparkle Style Co, Vance at Ainofea, Louda of Louda Larrain and Isha of Artishacollection to name a few of the summer 2023 designers we've recently worked with.

As stated above, summer 2023 kicked off with our Summer intensive courses where Kapa Mag provided a week of skills training, talent worked with production (headshots and reels) and were part of a working production (video or live showcase). We are excited to have worked with and trained talent not only from Maui but from the Islands of Kauai and Oahu this summer. Kapa Mag is a collaborative, community based organization, working in partnership with Lifestyles by Tina and KT Studios.

Please prepare and find us for Kapa Mag skills training coming to all islands including the Island of Lana'i for Spring and Summer of 2024.

The Kapa Mag summer Intensive is one of several ways talent can work with Kapa Mag and is designed to give Hawaii kids an opportunity to gain confidence-building skills needed to accomplish process, performance, and outcome goals along with serving our mission of empowering the people and merchants within the Hawaiian Island chain.
