Evening Dress


When Halston began using glitter in his designs, the results were sexier and more spectacular than any other designer's. He said, "I can do the jazziest clothes, dress the jazziest people."

This chemise dress with a dipping hemline is embroidered in an all-over design. The fabric has been dyed to create a range of hues, from deep yellow to orange.

Halston Enterprises, Incoporated, New York; given to IMA July 9, 1982.
