1970s Purple Velvet Halston Plunge Dress

An amazing black label 1970s Halston in a luxurious, rich purple velvet. The photos come close to conveying the color but it is even better n person. It is bias cut and with as little seaming as possible - in that classic Halston kind of way! The front literally plunges to the waist - though the cut is so well done you could spin this around and wear it to the back if you wished. The waist is elastic so is extremely comfortable to wear and will adjust easily to fit. The skirt is fairly straight with maybe a hint of an A-line to it. It is lined in a tissue silk hand dyed to match the purple and is all hand sewn and hand finished inside. Glorious, sexy and velvet is trending back in a big way! Excellent condition! Item# DD727
