This Ululani Dress features our Hilo One design on Valentine with Carnation ink.
“The Sands of Our Birth”
The names for our hometown, Hilo Palikū, Hilo One and Hilo Hanakahi, make up the three districts fronting Hilo Bay. Hilo of the Upright Cliffs begins at Wailuku river and goes north until Laupāhoehoe. Hilo One starts at the Waikulu river and embraces the black sand beach until Wailoa river. Hilo Hanakahi is the area on the east side of the Wailoa river.
The street map of Hilo is the webbing of our community. Our neighborhood has nourished and has inspired many of our designs, styles and window displays! We pay homage to this fair city on the bay.
Running from the Wailuku river all the way to Lanakila Housing, just past ʻĪpuka Street, Ululani is another street in the Hilo area that sometimes goes off the map before reappearing elsewhere in town. Glancing at the homes, apartments and even businesses that are located on this street, you will understand the importance! Some of the oldest framed buildings in Hilo stand on the block between Waiānuenue Avenue and Wailuku Street. It was called Pleasant Street before being re-named. This name was chosen for our first Hilo One style as it is all about celebrating! This party dress is cool, short and sweet. The highlight of this dress is about framing the upper body. This sleeveless "yoke" frames the neck and shoulders, and of course the party face. The decorative placket is sewn down, hinting to fun and style.
100% Cotton Model is wearing size XS.
