Halston Heritage brings its first Las Vegas location to Fashion Show mall, one of the new stand-alone boutiques from the iconic brand. Roy Halston Frowick, who is better known as just Halston, got his first dose of celebrity when he designed the pillbox hat Jackie Kennedy wore to JFK's inauguration in 1961. His fashions were the too-die-for looks during the disco era, especially at Studio 54 in New York City. He even designed the flight attendant uniforms for Braniff Airlines. Now after a series of designers leading the charge, including Randolph Duke, Bradley Bayou, Kevan Hall and actress Sarah Jessica Parker, former BCBG Max Azria head Ben Malka has taken over the brand.
