Spectacular Halston Resort 1982 Beaded Fringe Dress

This is a phenomenal dress from the resort 1982 Halston collection. This is from his main line and is done to Couture level. All of those fringes have been individually placed by hand and the movement that they create is spectacular. We found a photos of the dress on the runway for you to view she can see how it looks like on the body. And I also wanted to share some photos of two similar pieces from that same collection… A cardigan that was worn for the runway presentation and a custom piece that was done for Marisa Berenson that she wore to the Met Gala in 1981. The twin of the dress is also a part of the permanent collection of the met museum

I also included a video of the dress on the dress that is moving so you can see how fantastic the movement is on this dress. It has weight to it as all of those fringes are glass! Its amazing. I don't think any of the fringes are missing and it appears that the dress was worn very little, if at all. Excellent condition.

Unlined and closes with a back set zipper. All of the bead work is done by hand, and the dress appears to have been worn very little if at all. Tagged a vintage Halston 10
