Ode to Vintage Alfred Shaheen

Alfred Shaheen passed away on December 22, 2008. Shaheen was a pioneer in the screen printing industry and did amazing Hawaiian tropical prints. In fact he did the red aloha shirt worn by Elvis on the cover of "Blue Hawaii"!

Well tropical prints are in this summer and Vintage on Etsy has some great buys for you!

First from TialeyVintage is the striking Shaheen Asian Cheongsam in a size Large for the super price of $48.00!

Next from AncestorVintage is this beautiful peach Butterfly print dress in a Size 16 for $75.00 I have the same dress in a smaller size, although not yet listed, convo me if you are interested, I'll give you a great deal!

And last but not least......

from my very own shop DaisyToad is this new with tags Shaheen Maxi with a mandarin collar in a size 14, but fits more like an 8 or a medium!

So celebrate the life of Alfred Shaheen Master Screen Printer and wear some bright tropicals this summer!
