Fashion Frenzy puts the clubʻs mission into action by creating a venue for local designers and businesses to showcase their talents and products in a way that encourages the community to Think, Act and Buy Local. It also seeks to the next generation to follow their passion for fashion and art.
Hilo Zontians recognize the fashion and art renaissance across Hawaiʻ˜i and hope to spotlight the amazing talent on Hawaiʻi Island and throughout the State.
Funds Raised Support Local Service Projects
Event proceeds go to the Zonta Club of Hilo Foundation to support local service projects that empower women and girls including:
- The Club Pay it Forward program, which provides micro-grants to women starting or expanding a business
- Scholarships for young women wishing to further their education in STEM, business and nursing
- Dress for Success program to benefit Hawaiʻi Island women in need
We also want to use Fashion Frenzy as a vehicle to promote Hawaiʻi Island as an ideal location for designers across the state to manufacture their garments and products. We see real potential for fashion and art to become an economic driver for the islands.
