Halston's simplest and purest garments were actually very complex to conceive.

His approach to Minimalism is evident in the stark simplicity of this dress. The only decorative element is a 49-inch gold zipper that is placed under the left armhole. It diagonally crosses the dress in front and ends in the center back hem.
