Roy Halston Frowick, known worldwide as simply Halston, was one of the most influential American designers of the 20th century. He helped define ’70s style with his elegant yet sexy red carpet dresses that were staples during the disco era, especially among the group of diverse models dubbed the “Halstonettes.”
"Curious about what Halston might design today and how they would be sustainable, Frowick said he was irreplaceable. “A lot of his ‘being’ people don’t know about, but they want to know about that,” she said." WWD
"There are also plans to develop a business that could potentially sustain the scholarship fund and be under the label “With love, Halston.” Frowick said. The first scholarship will be bestowed on Halston’s alma mater, Indiana University." WWD

Halston invited me to live with him while I was attending the program at The International Center of Photography in 1984. He always loved to give struggling artists a helping hand and what a gift it was for me. His generosity continued when he suggested to famed jewelry designer Elsa Peretti that she hire me to travel to Japan with her to record her trip and shoot portraits of her beloved craftsmen. These portraits were displayed at her retrospective exhibit at Mitsukoshi in Tokyo. Following that incredible trip Halston asked me to shoot his portrait that he then submitted to the Des Moines Art Center when he donated all of his Warhol collection. I don’t think either of us knew it would be the last portrait of Halston.
