1940's Kamehameha Hawaiian Red & White Tropical Floral Rayon Halter Dress Set

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Kamehameha was one of the most creative and prolific Hawaiian companies in post-WWII fashion. Along side designers such as Alfred Shaheen, they pioneered Hawaii's vital garment manufacturing industry by stretching beyond the limits imposed by the isolation of the Hawaiian Islands. This beautiful silk-rayon ensemble is a perfect example of Kamehameha's talent. The print is unbelievable- a novelty red and white tropical scenic floral. I adore the low-cut plunge, shelf-bust halter bodice with seductive nipped waist. This show-stopper also comes complete with the matching cropped bolero! The hourglass side sarong-tie wiggle design finishes this garment off with an iconic femme fatale vibe. A rare piece of wearable art.

This vintage Kamehameha designer dress set is in excellent condition with no rips, holes or fade. Perfectly working side metal-zipper and support boning. Found two small manufacturing color flaws to the screen print near the bottom hem which is normal and not noticeable when worn. Please message for detailed pictures. This ensemble is over 60 years old and is truly stunning!
