In the 1970s Halston and Andy Warhol collaborated on many projects. Warhol based the print of this dress on his series of successful poppy flowers, introduced in the 1960s.

The dress is made from a single length of fabric. One end is placed under the arm, the corners joined at the shoulder. The fabric is then wrapped around the back and under the other arm and attached at the shoulder. Seams are at the center front and back.

(Beverley Birks, New York, New York); purchased by the Indianapolis Museum of Art in 2010.
