Food and beverage cast members at Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa, are sporting new costumes created by Hawaiian designer, Tori Richard. Not only are they designed locally, but also cut and sewn in Hawaii.

The Hukilau print, featuring sketches of several fish that are indigenous to Hawaii, including some that can be found in the resort’s snorkel lagoon Rainbow Reef. The word “hukilau” refers to a fishing method that uses a net lined with leaves to attract the fish.

At ‘AMA’AMA, Aulani’s signature restaurant, the new ocean blue costumes feature the ‘ama’ama mullet fish.

Costumes in the pool area and at The ‘Olelo Room are inspired by kapa, which is a fabric made from beaten fibers from certain plants. The fabric is then decorated with bamboo stamps to tell a story. The print on these costumes is similar to the designs found in the Maka’ala lobby mural, which were designed by artist Dalani Tanahy. The costumes feature ha’uke’uke, the sun-shaped sea urchin.
