Signature Details: Introducing the newly announced AXP Capsule Collection titled "With Love" in memory of the designer Halston. The new "With Love" Series is an ongoing series of bespoke AXP Collector Editions for the 2021 season, each presenting important and historical images donated from The Halston Archives. Each selection is specifically curated and selected by photographer Lesley Frowick, with a major percentage of proceeds going to support The Halston Archives Fashion Scholarship Initiative to benefit 'rising star' fashion students worldwide.
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
4” x 6” Watercolor illustration of full length floral halter dress from Halston Originals Resort 1978
by Joe Eula
The only official fashion studies that Halston undertook was one fashion illustration class at the Chicago Art Institute. As legend has it the professor told Halston that he had a natural talent and wouldn’t learn anything more than he already knew of illustration. He went on to illustrate the haute couture Parisian collections for Bergdorf Goodman where he worked primarily as their millinery department manager/designer. Once out on his own he followed the tradition of having each fashion collection illustrated so as to create an organizational story board. His first illustrator in the early 1970s was Stephen Sprouse with whom he worked for a few years until Joe Eula came on board in the mid 1970s. It was Joes expressions in watercolor that made Halstons designs truly come to life. Joe always worked on 4 “ by 6” pieces of watercolor paper that were then sorted and pinned to the story boards. Many of the illustrations from The Archives sport those historic pinholes. This classic illustration was tucked into a brown folder marked Halston Originals Resort August 1978.
