late day dress

Halston, Designer (American, 1932-1990)


Halston's simplest and purest garments were actually very complex to conceive.

His approach to Minimalism is evident in the stark simplicity of this dress. The only decorative element is a 49-inch gold zipper that is placed under the left armhole. It diagonally crosses the dress in front and ends in the center back hem.

Deloris "Dee" Garrett, Indianapolis, Indiania; given to IMA November 6, 2007.
