evening dress

Halston, Designer (American, 1932-1990)


Inspired by traditional non-western dress such as the sari and the serape, Halston created flowing, shapeless garments that caressed the body.

The floor-length serape is tie-dyed in a feather-shaped motif that forms a large arch on the background. The shoulder areas are tie-dyed in an abstract spider web pattern.

David W. Campbell, New York (Stan Weaver, New York); given to IMA April 18, 1984.
