Gorgeous Halston Couture beaded wrap gown dating back to the mid 1970's. 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 breathtaking and ultra-rare showstopper is a perfect example of his genius. The whole garment is fashioned in high quality silk lined beaded crochet cotton lace. The glossiness and suppleness of the beads give the appearance of a liquid surface, almost becoming a skin on its own! I love the deco swirl pattern which is so incredibly modern. The bodice has a seductive low-cut plunge backless halter design and ultra flattering "easy-to-wear" nipped waist wrap closure. The curved skirting with polished pointed back hem finishes this garment off with the perfect femme fatale vibe. A very sensual dress that will become a favorite in your collection.
