This Hua Dress features our Hōʻīnana design on Crimson fabric with Titanium and Sunny ink.
The students of Kanu O Ka ʻĀina Charter School in Waimea asked for a design for their graduating class of 2018. After our meeting, I realized they were a class of strong individuals who would not let their circumstances stop them from achieving and being the best they could be.
Summer days are the sweetest. They taste like cold lychee and fresh mango. They feel like ehukai and cold fresh ponds. Summer nights are filled with stars; like pupu lined up ready to be strung into a lei, the stars align to make constellations. Just as the lehua blossoms are bright highlights of the 'ohi'a, so are the stars of the summer skies. Brandy-Alia has mapped out our lehua stars, creating a skyful of possible connections. Na Huihui, the constellations, are the memories and connections we make through summer that last us a lifetime.
Named after the thirteenth day of the moon phase, the Hua Dress is a celebration of the fruits of our labor! A combination of many favorite styles, the sleeve, collar, length and trapeze is all about comfort. Youthful, cool and poise are offered in this all-occasion wearable. A stand-up collar, cap sleeves and an at-the-knee length, the style is all about comfort. Button-front closure and relaxing ease permits perfect strides!
