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!
