Florabunda showcased the bright designs of historically prominent fabric designers during the golden age of the Hawaiian shirt, exploring the artistic and cultural significance of this form of fabric design.

Florabunda was on display at KANEKO as a part of the collective exhibition, FIBER.

In addition to the garments on display, this exhibition featured historic photographs and informative video to glean insight into the designers’ creative process, and production of the fabric and shirts themselves. The design and production of classic floral patterns and the composition of abundant Hawaiian foliage is at the heart of this exhibition. Composed of shirts from the 1950s through the 1980s, the collection highlighted such designers as Alfred Shaheen, John Meigs, Elsie Das, and many more.
