evening ensemble

Halston, Designer (American, 1932-1990)


Halston was greatly influenced by earlier ethnographic styles, which he updated for the 1970s by incorporating classic techniques.

This bodice has a T-shape construction, with no shoulder seams and a built-in halter top. The skirt consists of five layers of chiffon, each cut in a semicircular format.

Elizabeth Weymouth, New York (Stan Weaver, New York); given to IMA March 24, 1986.
