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 caftan maxi dress is a perfect example of his genius. The fabric itself is a masterpiece; watercolor "light as a feather" tie-dye silk chiffon in one of the prettiest color combinations I've ever seen. This rare Halston handpainted tie-dyed series was produced by famed American textile house Up Tied. The free flowing silhouette with minimal construction makes this garment so comfortable and effortless to wear. Its the perfect piece to throw on during the day with sandals or sexy platforms for night. This is that versatile unique garment every fashionista looks for. Museum quality showstopper!
