George Peter Stavropoulos was born in Greece in 1920 and naturally his homeland influenced his designs during his successful career which began in Greece in 1949 and continued in New York in 1961 until the house was closed in 1990. He was all about ease and fluidity of design using layers of chiffon as his primary fabric of choice. This mid 70s forest green layered chiffon dress is bias cut with spaghetti ballerina straps and a scarf that can be worn either around the neck or at the waist, which was a style favorite of Stavropoulos. Certainly, the similarity to Halston is evident as they both worked in the "classic" style of toga and goddess dressing, but this Stavropoulos had an edge on Halston as his DNA was programmed for this style of design.

Stavropoulos multi layered bias cut ballerina spaghetti sleeve evening dress of forest green chiffon, c. mid 70s. Modern 4 to 6 SOLD
