1970s Pink Sequin Custom Halston Gown

This is not your usual Halston but is beautiful none the less. His stereotypical pieces are all flowing and simple but he also did quite elaborate sequin and beaded pieces for private and celebrity clients. This was sold to me as a custom piece that he did for a client. Its definitely a red carpet piece and built like one! The exterior is a fully sequined pink silk chiffon upon which every square inch is covered in pink and silver sequins mixed with tiny glass tube beads. This makes it very heavy but it is shockingly not heavy when worn as the weight distributes over the entire surface. The skirt is a slight A-line with a longer train at the back. It flows up the the bodice with a nipped in waist but no seam there to break the eye. The neckline is halter style and has a built in under bodice with cups so no undergarment is necessary. This was done because the back is left dramatically bare! The color is a true deep pink with an almost magenta undertone to it. The camera fails to pick up how it sparkles in the light. A masterpiece and in excellent, looks to have been unworn, condition! If only this dress could talk!

Bust: no defined side seam. Cups are a A-B Waist: 14" when measured flat across the back from side seam to side seam
Hips: to 20" when measured flat across the back from side seam to side seam
Length: approx 55" from shoulder to front hem. The train at the back adds an extra 5"

The dress is fully lined in hot pink silk satin. It closes with a low back painted zipper and the halter hooks around the neck with hook & eye. There are built in cups under the lining in the bust area. Hand finished inside and all seams are finished French style.
