Vintage Inspiration: 1972 Halston Jersey Dress

The 1970s has been a current design inspiration for upcoming Spring 2015 season.  I know, I know.  It’s just starting to get cold and I’m talking about the Spring collections.  You will see the trend in Fall apparel as well.  The billowing nature of the 1970s gowns and sleek jersey knit materials will be used by a range of clothing companies.  Today’s vintage inspiration is a Halston silk, jersey knit dress with a plunging neckline.  This gown, circa 1972 is part of The FIT Museum’s collection.
