Ultrasuede, a synthetic fabric created in Japan, provided a unique alternative to other fabrics because of its comfort and practicality. Halston started using Ultrasuede in the late 1970s, revolutionizing the fashion industry with garments that were both machine-washable and wrinkle-resistant. This simple, sleeveless, A-line dress made of Ultrasuede features a zipper at the center front and a self-tie belt that cinches in the waist.

Mrs. David A. (Dee) Garrett, Indianapolis; given to Indianapolis Museum of Art (November 28, 1995).
