Florida: Elliott Museum exhibition focuses on Guayabera shirts

Fashion statementS

A traveling exhibit produced by HistoryMiami, Guayabera: A Shirt’s Story, is making its debut at the Elliott Museum in Stuart, where it will run through March 30. In the exhibit, the stylistic development of the shirt is traced through examples and photographs highlighting the significant tailors, fashion designers and tradition bearers who were vital to its development. The precise origin of the guayabera is uncertain, though it is believed to have evolved in Cuba in the late 1800s from a guajiro (peasant) shirt into a fashionable piece of contemporary menswear.
