Late Day Dress


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.
