This dress is from the 1970s, the most successful decade of Halston's career. Its bias-cut and draped style fits perfectly with the glamour of the disco-era. Roy Halston was born in Iowa and later moved to Chicago to attend to the School of the Art Institute. He opened a millinery studio in Chicago in the early 1950s and later moved to New York to start his dressmaking career.
