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 black silk-satin sculpted gown is a perfect example of his talent. The bodice has the most beautiful sparkling beaded butterfly applique and dramatic billow-sleeves. I love the gathered hourglass nipped-waist which creates the illusion of height. The seductive front middle-slit finishes this garment off with a "femme fatale" vibe! For every woman, a black gown 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.
