Gorgeous Halston light-blue beaded shift dress dating back to his 1977 couture collection. 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 simple yet dynamic cocktail is a perfect example of his genius. The whole garment is fashioned with pastel hue glass-beads layered on embroidered light-blue silk crepe. The glossiness and suppleness of the sequins give the appearance of a liquid surface, almost becoming a skin on its own! I love the abstract floral pattern which is so incredibly modern. The lean, long sleeves really showcase the beautiful motif. The "easy-to-wear" shift style allows the garment to drape in such a chic way. A sensual dress that will become a favorite in your wardrobe.
This Halston Couture designer dress is in excellent condition with no rips, holes or missing beadwork. Only sign of age is some minor wear to the inside lining only. This garment is over 40 years old and is truly stunning.
