HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Goodwill Hawaii has announced that tickets are now available for the highly anticipated Goodwill Goes GLAM! presented by Bank of Hawaii Foundation scheduled for July 21-24, 2016 at the Blaisdell Exhibition Hall.

Kini Zamora, Hawaii's own 2016 "Project Runway" All-Star first runner-up, is returning to produce the annual fashion show. The theme of the fashion show is "Doll Me Up" and will feature original, upcycled creations by 13 aspiring local designers – including 6 college students from the University of Hawaii at Manoa and Honolulu Community College fashion programs and 7 junior designers from Sewciety Hawaii formerly known as ME+U Sewing. Following the fashion show, Zamora will award $1,200 to one college student and $300 to one junior designer who he feels displays the most industry potential.

The four-day event will feature some new additions this year, including the Hawaiian Telcom Entertainment Lounge equipped with TVs, a laptop/computer station, and complimentary Wi-Fi access for shoppers' enjoyment.
Boots Retail USA will also be hosting free beauty workshops and demonstrations at the GLAM! Spot from 11 am to 5 pm on the GLAM! Sale days featuring its No7 Cosmetics and Skincare products.
