1967 Galanos Couture Documented Black Polka-Dot Lace Cocktail Dress
An important and well-documented Galanos black polka dot net lace cocktail dress dating back to fall-winter 1967. As shown, the beautiful Lauren Hutton graced the pages of Vogue wearing this mod showstopper. Dedication to excellence in craftsmanship and design was the foundation of James Galanos' career. The quality of workmanship found in his clothing is unsurpassed in America today. It may seem a contradiction that his sophisticated, mature and elegant clothing were designed and produced in Southern California, traditionally the land of sportswear. But Galanos was satisfied to remain where he began his business in 1951, a continent away from New York and the center of the American fashion industry. This ultra chic 'little black dress' is a perfect example of his talent. The fabric itself is a masterpiece; high-quality sheer layered polka dot net lace with the most darling tiered eyelet trim. The straps are crafted with over-sized rhinestones for the perfect amount of sparkle. This figure flattering shift silhouette skimming the hip while showing off the legs. We needed to add many detail pictures so one can appreciate the masterful achievement. So effortlessly beautiful!
