Halston – Why Work For Us?


undefined

Roy Halston Frowick was the first luxury American Designer, whose groundbreaking silhouettes and use of fabric still influence and inspire us today. Founded in the 1960’s, the Halston label took the fashion industry by storm. His first work in millinery gained notary but his use of signature materials like jersey, cashmere, and suede left a lasting impact 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 Liza Minnelli, 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. As a new team of innovators continue to evolve the Halston brand, his legacy lives on. 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 influences generations of designers.

Our brand heritage is our strongest form of currency.
We have not just inherited a brand, but an icon and a lifestyle. Halston was the first, original, American designer and fashion house, who paved the way for the fashion industry as we know it today. Halston was a true innovator who was ahead of his time. Our work today is a testament to the Halston legacy and the heritage brand that put American fashion on the map. In the spirit of Halston, whatever touches our client must be simply perfect. It is about creating emotion first and transaction second. Connecting clients to the iconic brand and lifestyle will naturally lead to transaction.
