Halston was greatly influenced by earlier ethnographic styles, which he updated for the 1970s by incorporating classic techniques.

This bodice has a T-shape construction, with no shoulder seams and a built-in halter top. The skirt consists of five layers of chiffon, each cut in a semicircular format.
