Halston Couture Black and White Graphic Illusion Silk Chiffon Maxi Dress, 1977


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 Vogue magazine documented two-piece dress is a perfect example of his genius. The outer layer is fashioned from black and white op-art graphic semi sheer silk chiffon. I love the matching thin-strap, low plunge black under slip which works so well. This figure flattering garment accentuates the bust and skims the hips as it flows down the body in an effortless column silhouette. A timeless dress that is perfect for any modern event. Measurements Bust:33-34 inches Hips:up to 38 inches Total Length:56 inches This Halston Couture designer dress is in excellent condition with no rips, stains or holes. Slips on over the head with back hook and side snaps on the inner slip. This garment is over 50 years old and is truly stunning.
