Evening Ensemble (top, skirt, sash)
Creation date
about 1975
Materials silk metallic threads (lamé)

This three-piece ensemble was inspired by the orientalist styles of the early 1900s. The halter-top dress is wrapped and tied to the side, creating a pointed, asymmetrical hem. The accompanying top has long puffed sleeves and ties on the hips. A turban completes the ensemble.

The metallic yarns, dyed in subtle shades of silver, lavender and blue-green, create a scintillating effect when the outfit is worn.

Sometimes (often) I wonder why I keep these piles of clippings, and then once in a while I find I saved something like this!
