UHMC Fashion Technology rocked the runway at the  Imua Family Services’ 3rd Annual Gala Celebration Fundraiser, Fantasia Ball 2014. Inspired by the 1964 film My Fair Lady, the collection featured the kind of gowns and broad-rimmed hats Audrey Hepburn made famous. This year’s Fantasia Ball theme was “Black & White”, and with flashbulbs snapping, student models lit up the stage for the event that took place April 5th at the Hyatt Regency Maui Monarchy Ballroom in Kaanapali.

The evening also featured a five-star chef-inspired dinner, a silent auction, and cutting-edge visual and musical entertainment with live musicians, drummers and dancers including vocal styling of some of Maui’s own young talent.

Imua Family Services Director, Dean Wong was thrilled with the turnout “It was a blast! Mahalo to each of you for making #imuaball 2014 a HUGE success.”
