Ululani Dress Wasabi Lei Lokelau

Size Guide

This Ululani dress features our Lei Lokelau design in Wasabi and Smoke/White.

The sight of Uncle George Naope at the Merrie Monarch Festival was always a treat.  He dressed in the most wonderful manner, befitting the icon that he was!  In addition to his jewelry and his colorful attire, he always wore lei as many were made especially for him.  The lokelau was exceptional because it was always a double lei and longer than most others.  The smell was distinct: peppery and green.  Every year, the same person would make Uncle this special lei.  For me, each time I see a lei lokelau, I think of Uncle George.  This design of the green rose - and the lyrics of the mele composed to honor it - celebrates my memories of  Uncle George and his special lei.

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.
