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!
If some lucky lady gets married in this beauty, I hope she sends me photos!
Have a glamorous day
