Hope. Birth. Renewal. All characteristic of the season and fitting words to suit the springtime opening of Nordstrom at Ala Moana Center March 7, marked by a full runway show March 5 to benefit HUGS, Bishop Museum and Hawaii Theatre Center.

The retailer is ready to turn up the volume on fashion in Honolulu with fresh, feminine designs, both relaxed and fitted, in the vivid colors of the season. Quench your thirst for style with dresses and separates in dramatic prints or colors of juicy pineapple, mysterious Blue Hawaiis and strawberry Lava Flows.

How refreshing.
