Fashion is serious business. According to a recent article in The Pacific Business News, the fashion industry in Hawaii is already generating "more than $750 million in annual sales, $20.4 million in tax revenue and 3,630 jobs." It goes on to quote Melissa White, co-founder of the Hawaii Fashion Incubator and co-chair of Hawaii Fashion Month: "The state sees that the fashion industry is a creative industry that can basically create jobs along the entire production cycle. And, it can be exported. It's a great industry base for the state."
