Roy Halston Frowick was the creator of luxury American fashion, whose groundbreaking designs still influence and inspire us 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. He was also known as the father of minimalism, using simple pared-down silhouettes with flow and movement.
Once dubbed "the premier fashion designer in America" by Newsweek, Halston was synonymous with the 1970s and the era of Studio 54. 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 and evolve the Halston brand. Evolving the brand while maintaining the heritage codes requires years of experience and intuition, hence why the Design and Management teams at Halston have been carefully curated from around the globe to ensure the continuity of style that has influenced generations of designers.
Halston Heritage is currently sold worldwide, with a strong presence in North America, Asia, Europe, and South America.
The company headquarters are based in Los Angeles, California.
