Simply Halston, Paul Fashion Arts Gallery

Roy Halston Frowick (1932–1990) was born in Iowa and grew up in Indiana. Hailed by Newsweek magazine, as "the premier fashion designer of all America," Halston began his career as a milliner and later designed the hat Jacqueline Kennedy wore at her husband’s inauguration in 1961. A master of cut, he was a favorite of many celebrities and designed clothes for Elizabeth Taylor, Liza Minnelli, Anjelica Huston and Lauren Bacall. Most of the approximately 32 designs in this exhibition were drawn from the IMA’s fashion arts collection.
