Aloha Dresses ~ Antique & Retro Dresses


MISSIONARY GOWNS, MUU MUU, HOLOMU, HOLOKU, and PAKE MUU. The missionaries forever changed the landscape of Hawaii, especially the dress of the local women, persuading them to wear loosely fitting gowns reaching from the neck to the ankles with long sleeves. Later the casual floral printed muu muu was born. Variations of this dress in the form of the pake muu, the Holomu and Holoku followed. The Aloha Shirt Museum & Boutique has a stunning collection of these dramatic and elegant gowns.


Popular Hawaiian dress styles from the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s are still favorites today!

The Aloha Shirt Museum & Boutique embraces the romance of these relaxed fun in the sun fashions and has the latest styles and repro prints available.
