Oscar de la Renta
ca. 1970

The cutout midriff in this rich velvet gown is one of the elements of counterculture style that found its way into high fashion. In the late 1960s, Oscar de la Renta began utilizing Moroccan motifs in his designs, which included scrolled gold braid with gem-like ornamentation as seen in this gown.
