evening ensemble

Halston, Designer (American, 1932-1990)


The skirt of this dazzling, one-of-a-kind evening ensemble is made of eight layers of black synthetic tulle, each with one seam at the back. The custom-made tulle bodice has a synthetic foundation and is elaborately decorated with large pouf sleeves. Completing the dramatic effect, the ensemble is finished with a long belt constructed of eight tulle pompoms attached to a grosgrain ribbon.

Jane B. Holzer (b. 1940), New York; through (Stan Weaver, New York): given to the Indianapolis Museum of Art (1986).
