Fabulous Find-Unique 1950s White Shaheen Sarong Dress

By .

Collectors of vintage Hawaiiana and/or 1950s  clothing  are familiar with the master screenprinter and designer, Alfred Shaheen.  His earlier tropical fashions are coveted worldwide for their beautiful prints, distinctive design details and stylish silhouettes.  Recently I was fortunate to acquire this unique 50s white sarong dress by Shaheen  with a very cool contrasting border print.   From the fabulous bodice with his signature diagonal flap, halter strap and sexy wrap skirt with polynesian print hem,  I can certainly envision this dress worn for a casual beach wedding or even for a Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly wedding.   Just add fresh gardenias or white orchids to complete  the “tropical temptress” bridal look!

  1. I was so excited when I found this beauty. It’s not often you run across a pristine Alfred Shaheen dress from the 50s, never mind a white one with a super cool border print. I so hope someone gets married in it!

  2. This dress is as utterly, perfectly glamorous as Hawaii is warm. Ohhh, what an awesome treasure! I really hope that the lucky buyer shares photos of herself in it, too – I bet it looks even more breathtaking on.
