Roy Halston Frowick, better known as Halston, who died twenty-seven years ago today, was America’s first internationally renowned designer, best-known for his eponymous label Halston, worn by icons from Jackie Kennedy to Liz Taylor. Halston himself became as famous as the clothes he designed, with a ubiquitous presence at Studio 54 and a large group of superstar friends.
.
After moving to New York City in 1957 and becoming head milliner at Bergdorf Goodman, Halston achieved his first great fame when he designed the pillbox hat worn by Jackie Kennedy for her husband’s 1961 inauguration. By the late 1960s, Halston had switched to designing clothes, launching his first ready-to-wear line—Halston Limited—in 1969. Halston’s approach, he explained, was to get rid of “all the extra details that didn’t work—bows that didn’t tie, buttons that didn’t button, zippers that didn’t zip, wraps that didn’t wrap.”
.
Over the next fifteen years, Halston’s minimalist designs—and a line of fragrances—were hugely successful; his boutique drew clients like Babe Paley, Anjelica Houston, Lauren Bacall, Liz Taylor, and Liza Minelli, and he famously designed uniforms for Braniff Airways, the Girl Scouts, the New York Police Department, and Avis.
.
In 1972, Halston met artist Victor Hugo, who was then working as a rent boy, and the two began a sixteen-year relationship.
.
In 1983, the designer signed a six-year licensing deal, worth a reported $1 billion, with the retail chain J.C. Penney; the line, Halston III, consisted of affordable clothing and accessories. The venture proved disastrous, as Halston’s high-end reputation plummeted and the retail line failed. Moreover, Halston largely lost creative control over his label.

Halston tested positive for HIV in 1988; he died, at the age of fifty-seven, on March 26, 1990. #lgbthistory #HavePrideInHistory #Halston

Un día como hoy en 1990 fallece el diseñador Roy Halston Frowick, también conocido como Halston. Fue la primera superestrella internacional de la moda; un maestro del corte, el detallado y el terminado.
Vistió y fue amigo de algunas de las mujeres más glamurosas del mundo. Jackie Kennedy, Elizabeth Taylor, Babe Paley, Silvana Mangano, Lauren Bacall, Martha Graham, Bianca Jagger y Liza Minnelli eran algunas de las mujeres que vestían Halston.

The Nassau County Museum of Art presents a major retrospective of the work of renowned fashion designer Halston curated by his niece Lesley Frowick. It's a beautiful exhibition featuring many of Halston's elegant creations and lots of photographs and memorabilia. I loaned the museum five of my Halston photographs from the 1970s which are in the Studio 54 room. Here are four of them with myself and Lesley Frowick at the opening March 24th.
