Halston (Roy Halston Frowick) (American, 19321990)
Gift of Faye Robson, 1993 (1993.351ab)
Wrapping, tying, and folding were all habits of mind for Halston. That the designer prized simplicity is evident in his most famous millinery achievement, the pillbox hat. In this Ultrasuede shirtwaist, perhaps his greatest dressmaking success, he offered a versatile sportswear icon in a new material, allowing for countless individual expressions through personal styling.
