This Ululani Dress features our ʻŌlapa design on Indigo with Cloud ink.
‘Ōlapa trees stand out in Hawaiian forests primarily because of the light green color of their fluttery, shiny, compound leaves. Five or more leaflets branch out from a single stem. The contrast between this native and the ‘ōhiʻa and lama trees that can grow beside it is easily observed. ʻŌlapa leaves are made into lei hīpuʻu, a style in which leaf stems are knotted together, something not often seen today.
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.
