Day Dress


In the 1970s Ultrasuede was almost synonymous with the Halston name. Ultrasuede provided a unique alternative to other fabrics because of its comfort and practicality.

The bodice and raglan sleeves of this shirtwaist dress were cut in one piece. The self-tie belt is adorned with a heart-shaped silver buckle.
