Halston revolutionized the way women dress and is one of the few designers, alongside Claire McCardell and Norman Norell, to define what is American fashion. Throughout most of the seventies he epitomized the glamour, as well as the decadence of the era, becoming a central figure in the nightlife scene of New York's Studio 54. He was known for his flattering body-conscious clothing in jersey and silks. This Vogue magazine documented two-piece dress is a perfect example of his genius. The outer layer is fashioned from black and white op-art graphic semi sheer silk chiffon. I love the matching thin-strap, low plunge black under slip which works so well. This figure flattering garment accentuates the bust and skims the hips as it flows down the body in an effortless column silhouttee. A timeless dress that is perfect for any modern event.
