Waiakeakua Hua Dress- Capri
This Hua Dress Features our Waiakeakua Print on Capri material with White and Ive Frappe ink.
White ginger blossom made up my very first design. Learning how to cut the amberlith from my friend David Hormann, I chose the ginger at Waiau began blooming. The blossoms in the early morning sunlight reminded me of the place where I would often take Nalani when she would come to visit me in Honolulu. It was at the base of the Kpoʻolau Mountains in Manoa Valley. There was a swimming hole next to a small farm of white ginger and gradenias. The name of the river was Waiakeakua. The cut of these flower design are a reflection of time. They honor the years that Nalani and I have been together. They also share an intimate respect for the fragile blooms and my desire to express a peaceful form.
Hua is the thirteenth moon of the monthly cycle. The moon is egg shaped in appearance. It is a good day to plant anything that bears fruit.
We named this dress after this Hua moon phase. Its “A” shape, short cap sleeve, stand-up collar, and informal button-up front makes this comfortable and ready for every day wear.
