Alison Amii
Mango Tango and Naturally Petites


Born and raised in: Honolulu (4th generation)
High School: Aiea High School 1989
College: University of Hawaii at Manoa 1995
          (Fashion Design and Merchandising)
Spare time: Spending time with my 2 boys (Breydan & Ryder)
          and family, playing tennis, shopping and going to the
Style: Simple, with a bit of flare, yet comfortable for the
          working or retired woman!
Inspiration of your pieces: Taking into account the local
          customer and what fits her needs. We take pride here
          at You & Me Naturally that everything is still manu- 
          factured in Hawaii. I believe in "comfort", being that I
          wear jeans to work just about every day with a simple
          knit top and a layering jacket. Seldom does a garment
          need to be drycleaned or ironed. Most of what we
          make is wash and wear!

Linda Iki
Iki Couture Designs LLC
1542 Young Street #205
Honolulu, HI 96826
(808) 944-9293

Fashion, as a basic necessity of life, should be fun and
exciting. Yet, it needs to strive to achieve one individual life
style and needs. The garment is only one of the components
that make a woman feel complete. A designer must consider
the client’s fashion from the inner self to the outer layer of
accessories. Finding that sophisticated look through fabrication,
fit, color and designs is what women look for from a designer.

Trained at the Paris Fashion Institute and at Tokyo’s Sugino
School of Dressmaking, enables Linda Iki to meld together
the best from both centers of haute couture.

Iki Couture Designs is the culmination of one woman’s dream
of having a presence in the fashion world of Hawaii. What
began as a “cottage industry” business out of her home 30
years ago has grown into a name recognized in the fashion
circles of Honolulu for classic, timeless designs in knits and
other fabric media.
