1970s Halston Burgundy Sequin Tunic or Mini Dress

Sequins have rapidly gone from evening only to be worn almost anytime of the day - something that seems a new trend - but in reality Halston was championing this in the mid to late 1970s and who can argue with one of the greatest American designers? Halston had the fabric for these sequin pieces hand made in India. It is a stunning combination of a fine and light silk chiffon that is densely covered by hand in glossy burgundy sequins. The silk is entirely cut on the bias so the top slips on a drapes and hugs your curves like liquid. That effect once on and you move is just amazing. The cut and construction are what one would expect from one of the most eminent American designers. I love that you can wear it as a tunic or if you dare, as a ultra mini. Excellent condition.

Unlined and slips on to wear. I see no bare areas. The bias cut allows it to fit on a larger range of sizes
