1976 Halston Couture Navy Silk Draped One-Shoulder Wrap Goddess Gown
A gorgeous Halston couture navy-blue silk draped wrap gown dating back to his 1976 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 soft body-conscious clothing with beautiful draping. This luxurious navy-blue wrap dress is a perfect example of his genius. The one-shouldered gown appears in many of Halston’s collections; he was especially interested in the bias-spiraling of fabric over the body. The effortless way the garment moves with the body is perfection. The apparent simplicity of his designs is extraordinary in it's minimalist resolution. This gown, constructed of one large crescent of mid-weight silk with no visible seams draped over the shoulder, is reminiscent of an ancient Roman toga. A timeless look that is perfect for any modern event.
