Roy Halston Frowick was the creator of luxury American fashion, whose groundbreaking designs still influence and inspire Fashion today.
Founded in the 1960s, the Halston label took the fashion industry by storm. Known for his innovation in millinery, Halston used his signature materials of jersey, cashmere, and suede to reinvent the jumpsuit, the shirtdress, and the classic caftan, permanently leaving his mark on fashion.
The 1970s and the era of Studio 54 became synonymous with Halston’s designs. Soon after, he was named “the premier fashion designer in America” by Newsweek. His strong connection to pop culture was evident by his friends and clients, which included Andy Warhol, Bianca Jagger, Elizabeth Taylor, and Anjelica Huston. Halston went on to create one of the best-selling fragrances of all time in his signature tear-drop shaped perfume bottle designed by Elsa Peretti.
Halston created strong codes that are quintessential to the brand even to this day. His legacy lives on as a new team of innovators continue to evolve the HALSTON brand.
The company headquarters are based in Los Angeles, California.
