1970's Halston Black Sequin Silk-Jersey Plunge Hourglass Mermaid Cocktail Dress

About

Halston revolutionized the way women dress and is one of the few designers, alongside Claire McCardell and Norman Norell, to define what is American fashion. Throughout most of the seventies he epitomized the glamour, as well as the decadence of the era, becoming a central figure in the nightlife scene of New York's Studio 54. He was known for his flattering body-conscious clothing in jersey and silks. This seductive hourglass cocktail is a perfect example of his genius. The whole garment is fashioned with sparkling sequins on double layered black silk-jersey. I love the thin-straps and low-cut plunge neckline. The hourglass skirting flows into a breathtaking mermaid flounce hemline.This construction emphasizes a woman's seductive shape without adding any bulk or volume to the actual hips. This is the type of dress you will reach for anytime you want to be noticed. The perfect "little black dress"! Measurements Bust:32 inches Waist:26 inches Hips:35 inches Total Length:52 inches This Halston designer cocktail is in excellent condition with no rips,stains or holes. Perfectly working back-zipper. This garment is over 40 years old and is truly stunning!
