This Waʻaloa Dress features our Uluwehi Keaukaha design on Lingerie fabric with Roasted Pecan and Sable ink.
Countless times the breadfruit captures our imagination. Appearing in dreams and creating obsessive desires, we continue to create new representations of a favorite image. Literally meaning Decorated Keaukaha, the design is a symbol of the beauty of the Hawaiian Homestead area in Hilo, home of the Kanaka'ole family.
Literal Translation: Long Canoe
Our “O” dress is all about the O-neckline! The low back frames the neck and upper back, giving all a peek. The fitted bodice and the multi-gore skirt is perfect for a spin and delightful in hula.
Waʻaloa is located deep in the valley of Mānoa. Waiākeakua Stream is in this ʻili and where I visited very often. It was my quiet place and where I would go for inspiration and fun. Surrounded by white ginger and gardenias, this ʻāina will always be a favorite memory.
100% Cotton Model is wearing size S.
