Halston used very few prints and patterns in his collections, but he knew the importance of prints for camouflaging problems areas. He preferred abstract and irregular patterns over recognizable motifs.

This dress has a very complicated construction. The bodice with its raglan sleeves and the sash were all cut in one piece on the bias, while the skirt was cut on a straight grain. The sash extends from the back of the bodice and ties in the front.

David W. Campbell, New York, New York; through (Stan Weaver, New York, New York); given to the Iindianapolis Museum of Art in 1982.
