Evening Dress

Halston, Designer (American, 1932-1990)


Halston was the inventor of the first truly American style of high fashion. He focused on simplicity and ease.

"I think the one-piece dress is the most useful for most people," he once said. Halston used cashmere to make the simplest of silhouettes luxurious to wear.

Jane B. Holzer, New York (Stan Weaver, New York): given to IMA October 22, 1986.
