Fearless Seventies Design: Before the Rules

Halston gracefully cut seams to sheer off the shoulder in silk finishes only fit for night. His silhouette skimming jumpsuits in metallics lit up Studio 54 on the forms of glam laden stars. Diane Von Furstenberg dripped modernism in her every move - power thinking, strong attitudes and dresses to match. She invented the iconic wrap dress to emulate her mode. Perfection of form and sleek design for days that raced instead of stood idly by in still houses. Fiorucci captured our European longing for the color filled imagination we longed for. Hot tones layered upon each other in fabrications suggesting hand made. Overarching frilled details and stores that saturated us in candy coated luxe.
