Bliss Lau’s Fall 2011 collection

Bliss Lau's body jewelry, as a vest.

If you used to read my columns in The Honolulu Advertiser, you will probably remember Bliss Lau. I have been covering her progress as a New York designer ever since she graduated from Parsons School for Design.
Bliss, a local girl and Punahou grad, began as a handbag designer. She is now best known as a designer of chain and leather body jewelry, which she calls “sensual armor.”
This new concept in accessorizing was  so revolutionary right at the start that Rolling Stone put Bliss Lau’s body jewelry on their cover. As often happens, her success was immediately followed with a copy cat ( a New York model, no less) but Bliss was able to squelch that problem with a law suit.
Last Sunday, while nearly everyone else was glued to the Super Bowl, Bliss introduced her fall 2011 collection called “Embraced.”  Never a conformist, Bliss was not going to produce an average runway show. Instead, she draped her jewelry on six ballerinas who danced their way into the hearts of the exclusive audience members. 
Check out the YouTube videos below. I promise it is worth your time to do so.
Bliss’ Punahou classmate, Aaron Ekroth, produced the videos for her.
