Documented 1983 Halston Black One Shoulder Wrap Dress
This is certainly later Halston but still from the time period when he was alive and would have still owned the company. it was featured in an ad for B. Altman’s that’s ran in Vogue so we have an exact date of 1983. In it you can see his move to more modern fabric and feel of the 1980s in it's cut, while still maintaining his signature simplicity. The silhouette is his classic one shoulder design but inside there is far more structure then his earlier pieces would have had. Here he utilizes the stretch lingerie weight nude nylon "bandage" fabric that would have still been a fairly new innovation then, and creates a inner built in bodice that gives support to the wearer. Over this is a matte silk satin and a black crepe falls from there into a slim skirt. Attached ties wrap around the high set waist and tie for detail and at the back the skirt has been wrapped with a panel left to flutter down the side with a backing of the same silk satin as the bodice. Excellent condition. The bodice is lined as described above and the skirt self backed with a satin finish. It closes at the side with adjustable lingerie hooks at thew side bust and then the fabric wraps and hooks along the back with a series of hook & eye concealed along the seam. The attached ties wrap and tie at the waist. Bust: the hooks are set at 16", 17" & 18" flat across from side seam to side seam Waist: 15" flat across from side seam to side seam Hips: 20.5" flat across from side seam to side seam Bodice: 14.5" from top of shoulder to waist Skirt: 32" from waist to hem Modern Sizing Equivalent: SML-MED Send us a note to see this Reference photo: Vogue Magazine, April 1983.
