House of Aria

Downtown Honolulu is known as the business district of Oahu, but in recent years it also has become a fun shopping community with trendy fashion boutiques moving in, including House of Aria, which opened in February 2012.

Owner Melody Domingo says she relocated the store, originally located in Pearl City, to 1140 Bethel St. to accommodate a growing clientele from East Oahu.

“Our shoppers can expect to find clothing styles that range from casual to cocktail attire,” she says. “We can dress you for any occasion from an everyday outfit to a breezy lunch date or a special occasion dinner/party.”

On the First Friday of every month, House of Aria extends its store hours and holds a trunk show featuring a local designer. The next event takes place June 7 from 6 to 9 p.m. and will showcase B.E.A.D.S. HI, specializing in custom macrame and shamballa bracelets.

“We also are planning to hold our second annual summer fashion show in July,” adds Domingo. “More details will be coming next month, so look out for that.”
