Vintage 1960s Vibrant Red Royal Hawaiian Floral Mod Shift Dress


I was very excited to find this fun retro mod 1960s vintage shift dress by Royal Hawaiian. It is a shift style with the cutest details at the hem of large pleats and pockets topped by large covered buttons.
It is a barkcloth heavy cotton fabric in a vibrant tropical flower print done in a bright red orange, yellow and cream print. Parts of the print is a paisley design.
If you have a Hawaiian luau event to attend this would be perfect. Or just wear anytime to stand out from the crowd. This sweet dress would even work for a vintage wedding in Hawaii.

Here is a little information about the Royal Hawaiian company courtesy of the Vintage Fashion Guild.
In 1937 Max Lewis founded the Royal Hawaiian Manufacturing Company in Honolulu, Hawaii. By 1947 it was owned by G.J. Watumull, who made island clothing from tropical printed cotton and silk. Watumull marketed this line through his Watumull’s East India Stores.
