1970s Silk Organza Bill Blass Halter Top

This stunning Bill Blass halter top is a glorious confection of ruffles done in a beautiful pale cafe au lait silk. Additionally he has chose a silk that has a fine stripe worked through it so you get this subtle secondary texture feel which is quite beautiful. It is a true halter style and goes up and around the back, is virtually backless and then zips to close at the front with the zipper hidden under the ruffles. It is a fabulous way to add instant glamor to just about anything and can be worn on its own or under other pieces. Insanely fabulous and this was most likely a custom or runway piece based on the workmanship. Excellent condition.

Fully lined in a silk crepe in a matching color and closes with a painted metal and nylon zipper at the front. Light boning at the sides. Hand finished.
