Holokū on Display in Miller Hall

Author: FDM

Four holokū from the Historic Costume Collection are on display through January 2023.

The four holokū on display in Miller Hall include a 1920s floral print and a 1998 vivid orange creation; 1950s eyelet lace dress made in a Mother Hubbard design with images printed images of Hawaiian women; and 1970s Mamo Howell with cowl neckline and printed with shell lei.
