Fashioning Aloha

April 12 - September 1

Aloha wear is more than flowers. Spanning almost 90 years, Fashioning Aloha showcases the diversity and inspiration of design motifs in aloha wear—holokū (gowns), mu‘umu‘u, holomu‘u (dresses), and aloha shirts. Starting with the birth of aloha wear in the 1930s, when printed fabric depicting Hawaiian motifs developed, and continuing to the present with contemporary brands, this exhibition explores how aloha wearand its local and global design references can signal identity, culture and connection to place. Garments are paired with their textile motifs’ source materials from the museum’s collection.
