About Halston

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.

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, as a new team of innovators continue to evolve the HALSTON legacy through the HALSTON HERITAGE collection. Under the vision of new Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Ben Malka, an industry veteran, today HALSTON HERITAGE is an approachable luxury lifestyle brand – mixing legacy codes with a modern edge to create an effortless women’s collection of ready-to-wear, dresses, handbags, footwear and small leather goods.

The new HALSTON HERITAGE is carried by some of the world’s most formidable retailers including Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, Saks Fifth Avenue, Net-A-Porter and Harvey Nichols, and as of Spring 2013 – the first HALSTON HERITAGE stores. HALSTON’s premier flagship opened in March 2013 on New York City’s Madison Avenue, marking the brand’s return to the iconic street 45 years after Founder Roy Halston Frowick opened his first store there in 1968. Additional stores in key markets across the country have subsequently opened, with more than 20 locations planned in 2013. The brand also launched its first digital flagship in October 2013.

The company headquarters are based in Los Angeles, California.
