In addition to the panel event, guests will also be able to view Vintage Lines, Ward Village's newest exhibit featuring a curated collection of vintage aloha shirts from the last century curated by Dale Hope. Dale's book, The Aloha Shirt will also be available for purchase at this event.

In the latest installment of the Summer Slide, our seasonal celebration of the magic moments that make summertime in Honolulu so special, Ward Village is proud to honor the aloha shirt with Vintage Lines, an exhibit curated by aloha shirt connoisseur Dale Hope. Travel back in time in this free exhibit as you wander your way through decades of aloha, marveling at the changing techniques, lines, and fabrics that captured the imagination of the world and came to symbolize Hawai‘i to millions of people.
