Halston

( 1 )

Overview

"By the late 1970s, the designer Halston (1932-1990) was synonymous with American style: a modern, minimal yet glamorous look that encompassed everything from a pioneering Ultrasuede dress to flowing caftans to perfume in a sinuous curved bottle, to uniforms that lent panache to flight attendants and The Girl Scouts of America alike. Beginning his career as a milliner to socialites and celebrities in Chicago in the late 1950s, by 1972 Halston had been named "the premier fashion designer of all America" by Newsweek magazine and was firmly

Overview

"By the late 1970s, the designer Halston (1932-1990) was synonymous with American style: a modern, minimal yet glamorous look that encompassed everything from a pioneering Ultrasuede dress to flowing caftans to perfume in a sinuous curved bottle, to uniforms that lent panache to flight attendants and The Girl Scouts of America alike. Beginning his career as a milliner to socialites and celebrities in Chicago in the late 1950s, by 1972 Halston had been named "the premier fashion designer of all America" by Newsweek magazine and was firmly established in New York; he counted such personalities as Liza Minnelli, Andy Warhol, and Bianca Jagger among his friends and clients. Tall, charismatic, impeccably dressed, Halston personified the lofty ambitions and non-stop nightlife of the 1970s and early 1980s as he traveled in jet-set circles both louche and luxe." This book, a visual anthology of Halston's life and legacy, includes previously unpublished catwalk photographs, rare archival photographs by Andy Warhol, behind-the-scenes images of fashion shows and parties, sketches, and specially commissioned photographs of Halston collections.
