Sun Fashions of Hawaii was listed as a clothing manufacturer in 1953 and was based in Honolulu. The company produced apparel for both men and women. The label design used in this dress was active up until the late 1960s when the company introduced a modernised version of their logo.
No notable flaws that I can see- some fraying to inner seams but not visible from outside nor does it impact on the integrity of durability of the item.
