About Halston

Studio 54, here we come. Well-known for his body hugging and shimmery clothing on the dance floors of discotheques in the seventies, Halston continues to thrive designing and manufacturing women's Halston apparel, denim, swimwear, intimate apparel, suits and men's clothing. The founder and creator of Halston, Roy Halston Frowick, designed women's wear for the rich and famous and today his name, brand and line live on.

Halston was born in 1932 in Des Moines, Iowa and had an interest in sewing at a young age, making hats and clothing. He took some classes in Indiana then moved to Chicago where he worked as a window dresser and studied at the Art Institute of Chicago. In 1957, he opened his first hat shop called the Boulevard Salon on Michigan Avenue.

Knowing his calling was in fashion, he moved to New York and started working for a milliner. In that same year he became co-designer at Daché and soon after became the head milliner for Bergdorf Goodman. In 1961, he became famous for designing a pillbox hat that Jacqueline Kennedy wore to her husband's presidential inauguration. He launched his womenswear label in 1968, and his dresses were worn by stars like Bianca Jagger, Liza Minnelli, Anjelica Huston, Lauren Bacall, and Elizabeth Taylor. He made separates in natural tones like bone, tan, taupe and brown that could be mixed and matched perfectly.

Halston's perfume, Halston, came out in 1975 as well as his menswear line. The fragrance being the second highest seller of all time. The bottle was designed by his good friend, Elsa Peretti. It was a tumultuous time for Halston during the mid seventies and eighties. Halston sold his name to Norton Simon Industries, he designed affordable clothing for JC Penney and since his death in 1990, his label has had almost 10 different owners and designers.
