An homage to 50 years of iconic Ralph Lauren style. Gigi Hadid wears a handmade patchwork gown of 132 separate patches united by zigzag stitching and embroidery.

Requiring the skilled work of three masters artisans, the gown showcase a patchworked American Flag – a symbol synonymous with Ralph Lauren style since the debut of the American Flag Sweater on his Fall 1989 runway, as well as Mr. Lauren’s personal commitment to the restoration of the Star-Spagled Banner at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History beginning in 1989.
