evening dress

Halston, Designer (American, 1932-1990)


This garment, the ultimate "disco" dress, is made of fine bias-cut gold tissue lamé. The skirt is composed of two half circles gathered into a narrow band at the waistline. The bodice has a slip neckline in front and is gathered with a narrow tie at the back of the neck, criss-crossing on the back and front of the torso.

Elizabeth Weymouth (b. 1943), New York; through (Stan Weaver, New York); given to the Indianapolis Museum of Art (1985).
