Roy Halston Frowick was born on 1932 in Des Moines,Iowa. He initially took inspiration to sew from his grandmother. He would create hats for his mother and alter clothing for his sisters. His foundation in fashion progressed in his teen years as he attended Indiana University for a short spell and then Art Institute of Chicago. All the while Halston was doing windows displays. Hat making would be his first love as he opened up shop in 1957, business was fine but when Jacqueline Kennedy wore her famous (Halston) Pillbox hat in 61’. He got to ride the wave of fame and fortune for a while but once hats started to go out of fashion for women it dried up. Halston’s low point would prove to be a test for what was next in his life. After much experimentation, a failed collection, and the help of his well curated team, he developed the minimalist yet irresistible look we all know and love! He was a true creator of culture during his time. Halston’s work was revered within studio 54 and worn by all the “It” Girls. Not only were his designs In 73’ he sold his line to Norton Simon but remained the main designer until 1984.
