Who is Halston?
The Netflix series centers around the empire built by late fashion designer Roy Halston Frowick, who is commonly referred to as Halston.
Halston started his career by designing hats. Within a year of launching his career, he became the head milliner for Bergdorf Goodman.
His career started to take off after first lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis wore his hat to President Kennedy’s inauguration.
After the exposure, Halston started making dresses in the late 60s and early 70s that put his name on the map. From there he built his empire until he was fired from his own company for not reaching deadlines and lost the right to sell clothes under his name.
When is it being released?
Netflix announced that the series will be released on Friday, May 14th on the streaming platform.
The announcement came when Netflix released the show’s poster along with a series of images and Polaroid pictures of the cast.
Murphy, who created hit television shows such as Glee and American Horror Story, is an executive producer for the limited series.
