1970's Halston Couture Sequin Silk Blue Clouds Tie-Dye One Shoulder Gown
Gorgeous and rare Halston designer sequin silk hourglass gown dating back to 1972. Halston's handpainted series from the early 1970's was produced by famed textile house Up Tied. Up Tied was an American textile house specialising in tie-dyed fabrics They won a special Coty Award for "major creativity in fabrics" in 1970. 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 soft body-conscious clothing with beautiful draping. This stunning dress is a perfect example of his genius. The fabric itself is a masterpiece; sparkling iridescent sequins on light-weight silk chiffon in one of the prettiest cloud novelty tie-dye ombres I've ever seen. I love the chic asymmetric one-shoulder neckline. The bias-cut 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.
Measurements (varies a bit due to bias-cut) Bust: 32-34 inches Waist: 24-26 inches Hips: 34-36 inches Total Length: 58 inches
