About

Dedication to excellence in craftsmanship and design was the foundation of James Galanos' career. The quality of workmanship found in his clothing is unsurpassed in America today. It may seem a contradiction that his sophisticated, mature and elegant clothing were designed and produced in Southern California, traditionally the land of sportswear. But Galanos was satisfied to remain where he began his business in 1951, a continent away from New York and the center of the American fashion industry. This stunning "light as a feather" scenic fish-print novelty silk-chiffon goddess cocktail is a perfect example of his talent. I love the draped capelet bodice and seductive backless design. The hourglass belted waist compliments the yards and yards of flowing silk-chiffon used for the skirt. For every woman, a print cocktail are a fashion must-have. It's a style for all ages, simply because it exudes an undeniably youthful flair, and yet remains incredibly timeless.
