Lights! Camera! Fashion! The Netflix miniseries Halston that dropped last Friday has the internet abuzz with myth-busting stories and deep-dives into the American fashion designer's life. Roy Halston Frowick was best known in the Seventies and Eighties for his sexy, lean designs that went against the grain of the time, but fit perfectly into the discotheque era that birthed the legendary nightlife of Studio 54.
The other thing Halston was famous for? The people who surrounded him. Here are the figures in his life who made the biggest impression on the show.
1. Elsa Peretti
Another close friend of Halston's, the show depicted the Italian socialite as his fit model from the get-go, before her talent for sculpture and jewellery design led her to becoming a designer for Tiffany & Co. Her Bone Cuffs and teardrop bottle pendant remain some of the most iconic pieces ever made for the brand.
