For the first time ever, Netflix will be partnering with fashion brand Halston to produce and sell the gowns from its miniseries

Is Netflix breaking into high fashion? With the release of its latest biopic exploring the highs and lows of iconic American designer Halston, the streaming giant has also revealed that it would be partnering with the real-life house of Halston to create and retail a capsule collection of glamorous gowns based on the ones seen in the show.

It's a natural extension of the show, whose executive producer Ryan Murphy and costume designer Jeriana San Juan reached out to the brand before filming to access their archive. Their purpose was to “celebrate the iconic pieces and fabrics that were part of [Halston’s] DNA,” San Juan told The Hollywood Reporter in an interview. And the end result—with its depiction of Halston's revolutionary design forays with batik, tie dye, Ultrasuede and ’70s glamour—was absolutely stunning.

So it comes as no surprise that they would partner with current Halston chief creative officer Robert Rodriguez to work on a capsule collection commemorating the American fashion icon's best work. “It was an opportunity to bring back iconic gowns that Halston himself created, but reinterpret them to make them more modern,” Rodriguez told Fast Company

The collection will consist of 10 gowns, each named after different Halstonettes, as the designer's coterie of celebrity and model friends were known. For instance, the Liza is a gold Lurex gown with a sunburst pattern, while the Elsa is a blue caftan with a batik pattern.

The gowns will be priced between US$995 and US$1,595, and will be available for pre-order in June.
