MEET THE FOUNDERS

Melissa May White and Toby Portner co-founded HIFI in 2006 as a grassroots effort to build community, connect with opportunity, and provide resources to Hawaii’s fledgling fashion industry. With backgrounds in urban planning and public health, respectively, the two set out to pursue a common passion and interest in fashion. The partnership continues, bolstered by a membership and network of more than 5,000 fashion professionals and enthusiasts in Hawaii and beyond.

HIFI forms community partnerships and teams around its initatives.  Find many of our friends and partners listed on the home page.
