The History of the Aloha Shirt - An interview with Dr. Linda Arthur

There is a fabulous interview on the History of the Aloha Shirt up now on the Collectors Weekly site. The interview is conducted by Maribeth Keane and Brad Quinn who in turn talked to Dr. Linda Arthur who is a collector, author, professor and curator at Washington State University. Interestingly enough Linda was also co-curator at the Alfred Shaheen exhibit Fabric to Fashion that we blogged about here. It's really an informative, in-depth interview. If you have a few moments take time to go and read it. I think you just might learn a thing or two about Aloha Shirts.
