sash for evening ensemble

Halston, Designer (American, 1932-1990)


Halston said, "I always make a lot of red [dresses] because it's the color noticed most. I advise clients who do major appearances to wear bright red, blue or yellow."

The jumpsuit has a one-shoulder bodice, which is constructed of four layers of chiffon. It is made in two pieces: the back overlaps the front on the right side, while the front overlaps the back on the left.
