Item details

Vintage from the 1970s


50 polyester, 50 rayon

Elegant Alfred Shaheen 70s maxi dress in a pale lemon yellow vine and bird print.
The designer, Alfred Shaheen, is well known to collectors of Hawaiian textiles and Aloha wear. His father, George Shaheen designed and made custom Hawaiian clothing and Alfred joined the family business in the 1940's, finally establishing his own line of ready to wear from fabric made and hand printed in Hawaii. Alfred Shaheen is one of the most well known 20th century Hawaiian textile and clothing designers and his beautiful garments are wonderful to own.

This Shaheen pointed collar 1970's era dress, is a long maxi style in a shimmery pale lemon yellow polyester and rayon blend with long sheer sleeves and fully lined bodice and skirt. The print is a pretty vine and bird design that trails over and down the skirt front and back in spring green, lavender, orange and yellow. The fabric is signed on the lower skirt and the dress has covered buttons clear down the front, a hook and eye at the waist. (I believe there may have been a self fabric belt, but it is has done a disappearing act unfortunately). There are small covered buttons at wrists as well. Quality of construction is of course high end and beautiful as you would expect in a designer garment. This dress look unworn but seems to have just a couple tiny snags, one at back collar and bodice and there is a thread pull on one sleeve. These are extremely minor and will not be noticeable when wearing. I
consider this dress to be in excellent condition.

This style is very flattering with the fitted bodice above a flared skirt.
