1970s Pink Sequin Iridescent Halston

Much ado has been made in recent years about the advent of wearing day cut pieces that are embellished with evening detailing or in evening fabric. However, Halston did this in the mid and late 1970s to great aplomb and this dress is an amazing example of that! It is cut like a simple shirt dress - it snaps to close along the front and has a simple tie belt. It is however, completely covered with tightly sewn rows of iridescent sequins! That effect against the pale pale pink silk is just amazing!! You can style this in infinite amount of ways - add a more casual touch to make it work for a late afternoon unexpected look, or go full on evening with heels and subtle and chic jewels. The cut and construction are what one would expect from one of the most eminent American designers and everything about it is perfect - the cut , the line, the fabric - everything! Excellent condition!

Shoulders: slightly dropped - 16"
Bust: 18" flat across from side seam to side seam
Waist: 16" flat across from side seam to side seam
Hips: 18" flat across from side seam to side seam
Length: 38" from neck to hem

Fully lined in a pale pink tissue silk. It closes at the front with fabric covered hidden hand set snaps. There is perhaps some small areas of missing sequins but they can easily be replaced by stealing some from under the hems. It presents as perfect due to the thousands on the fabric and iridescent quality. The tie belt is a shade of pale lavender and original to the dress. It is also covered in sequins.
