Roy Halston Frowick was prairie-bred Iowan with a penchant for hats. He studied at the Chicago Institute, and shortly after opened his first millinery salon in a Chicago hotel in 1953. His hats won favor from actresses like Gloria Swanson and Deborah Kerr. Five years later, he moved to New York to join Lily Dache. Halston's defining design was a beige felt “pillbox” for Jacqueline Kennedy, copied widely for American women. Jackie “O” wore many Halston pillbox hats with dresses designed by Oleg Cassini. Known for his jet-set evening wear, Halston popularized turtlenecks and halter-neck dresses. His signature perfume, Halston, was sold in a bottle designed by Elsa Peretti, and joined other fragrances like Catalyst, Halston 1-12, Sheer, Unbound and Z.
