While at London Fashion Weekend, attendees have the opportunity to attend various designer shows. Emma and I were given press passes to attend the Halston Heritage show Saturday evening.
Halston Heritage, founded and created by Roy Halston Frowick, is not only famous for the brand’s signature use of jersey, suede and cashmere to create the famous one shoulder dress, the shirt dress, and the caftan, but how Halston influenced and inspired a whole industry.
A brand name that resonates Studio 54, the 1970s and Jackie O’s pillbox hat, Halston Heritage redefined American fashion and paved its way into the fashion industry. The Halston label remains an influence to designers today such as Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, and Tom Ford.
At LFWEND, the shows are often opened and welcomed from the host and attendees are given a brief history of the brand. LFWEND stands out as a great educator for those interested in learning about fashion labels.
Emma and I were definitely set up in the best part of the venue despite being surrounded by the flashing and clicking of cameras by the event photographers.
We were fans of the suits featured in the show, from a white drop neck jumpsuit paired with a blazer to a black and white androgynous suit– they were stand out looks for me. As tradition to the brand, the show was host to a large variety of dresses in a muted palette of white, black, pastels and seasonal turquoise in the form of legendary draping caftans to the one shoulder dress.
