Breathtaking museum-held Galanos custom couture gown ensemble dating back to his 1982 collection. Dedication to excellence in craftsmanship and design was the foundation of James Galanos' career. The quality of workmanship found in his clothing is unsurpassed in America today. This stunning black and white tulip-floral garden print dress is a perfect example of his talent. The garment is fashioned from feather light lined silk-chiffon. He then uses an ingenious illusion technique for the sleeves and backside which gives the garment so much depth and texture. The bodice has the chicest puff shoulders and tie-belt hourglass nipped waist. Just look at the amazing tiered back skirting and ruffled floating side panels! He finishes this gorgeous garment off with a matching full-length shawl. I totally see this show-stopper lighting up any event!
