Disco Dolly

When I first saw this Stephen Burrows ensemble at IMPACT: 50 Years of the CFDA, now on view at The Museum at FIT, I thought it was from the 70s but it’s circa 1997! Still, there is more than a hint of 70s disco glamour in the halter neck bodice and draped loose pants, and of course nothing says “Let’s Boogie” like bronze mesh and gold lamé.

Luring disco dollies to a life of vice!

Impact: 50 Years of the CFDA is on view through April 17, 2012.

Groovy! I do not remember that look being a trend in 1997 at all. Do you?

And no doubt it was worn with a dangerous pair of heels...that ran the risk of stabbing anyone else on the dance floor!
