William Travilla designed costumes for films and also opened his own salon with best friend Bill Sarris. The designs in his collection became known for their "California" fashion as they were comfortable, elegant clothes that did not have the rigidness and restrictions like the haute couture Paris creations. From the seductive off-shoulder neckline to the sheer illusion bodice, this "Old Hollywood" inspired dress is spectacular. The zig-zag skirting in particular is a marvel of construction because several layers of the chiffon have been used over the inner base, it has a real feeling of depth and richness. I love the nipped-waist hourglass flattering silhouette! Very chic, incredibly beautiful and totally timeless.
