Vintage Galanos Green Crushed Velvet Evening Dress


Striking green crushed velvet by couturier James Galanos for Neiman Marcus! This fun, bright dress has long sleeves with zipper closures, a draped neckline, and padded shoulders. The dress is composed of an abstract crushed velvet fabric in luminous emerald and kelly greens. The skirt features a triangular bodice detail, draped shoulder, and a front twist skirt. Front slit. James Galanos spent the early years of his fashion career under the tutelages of Hattie Carnegie, costume designer Jean Louis, and Parisian couturier Robert Piguet. His experiences with these master designers informed his luxurious-but-not-ostentations designs. Throughout his entire career, Galanos did not once expand his brand, eschewing a mass-market paycheck. Among his clientele were Grace Kelly, Marlene Dietrich, Rosalind Russell, Diana Ross, and First Lady Nancy Reagan. Exclusive and opulent, Galanos is known for making the finest, most elegant garments.
