Tonight marks the second installment of First Fashion Friday at Aloha Tower Marketplace. At 6 tonight in the Center Atrium, a panel of local fashion folks will address the ever-confusing issue of "Transitions," how to take your wardrobe from day to evening. A makeup artist also will offer tips to make makeup work from the office to a dinner date.

The event is a collaboration between Aloha Tower Marketplace and the Hawaii Fashion Incubator. Information: 566-2337, info@alohatower.com.
