Meet the Maker – Nana Atelier
Meet Nana Atelier – Los Angeles-based fashion house and Shoreline Hotel Waikiki’s very own clothing designer.
During our #NatureMeetsNeon transformation, the Shoreline team was so inspired by the amazing DJ NEFF tropical neon murals on our rooftop that we we decided to create a clothing collection featuring DJ NEFF’s art.
With the help of Nana Atelier, we designed a capsule collection of stylish pieces that showcased NEFF’s designs – a pocket tee, wrap skirt, wrap top, shoulder tie jumpsuit, polo shirt and a headband. Our goal was to partner with a company that could not only produce our vision, but also embraces sustainable and ethical practices, and a healthy work environment for their team.
Lead by fashion designer, Alnea Nabos, Nana Atelier is located in the hustle and bustle of downtown Los Angeles. With more than 30 years of industry experience, Nana Atelier focuses on high-quality domestic craftsmanship, sustainability and an ethical work environment embracing the talent of her team. The company focuses on fighting low wage and unethical practice, with Nabos bringing thought-provoking design and fashion-forward style.
“Our team here at Nana Atelier, wanted to create the same contemporary style as the hotel in the fashion line. The print is so vibrant that we thought a simple silhouette would create a nice balance,” said Nabos. “We wanted to have the guest take home a souvenir from their Hawaii trip with a fun fashion piece.”
