Book description
Haiku summary

"This book, a visual anthology of Halston's life and legacy, includes previously unpublished catwalk photographs, rare archival photographs by Andy Warhol, behind-the-scenes images of fashion shows and parties, sketches, and specially commissioned photographs of Halston collections."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
