Woman's Evening Dress

Designed by James Galanos (American, 1924–2016) Embroidered by D. Getson, Eastern Embroidery, Los Angeles
Layers of bugle beads and sequins, painstakingly stitched onto sheer silk by skilled workers at D. Getson Eastern Embroidery of Los Angeles, create a textural, perfectly matched tartan on this body-hugging sheath. This dress is a ready-to-wear design—like others created by Philadelphia- James Galanos at his California fashion house—but meticulous in construction and detailing.
