Halston's had a hell of a time, but the minute I heard Marios Schwab was on board I thought, "Finally, this is going to work."
Sure enough, last night, Marios debuted a stunning collection for the legendary label. The presentation was held in a giant studio on the far west side--the models sprawled out on modern furniture, in twos and threes, wearing short leather dresses, long sleeved shifts, slim pants and a few gowns invoking the history of the house, without being too literal.
Meanwhile, Harvey lurked in a corner until Sarah Jessica Parker arrived. The actress, who was named Creative Director of Halston Heritage last month, breezed past the cameras, "Excuse me, I have to meet Marios!"
And suddenly, I was left staring into a sea of beautiful dresses wondering how in the world they brought her on board without meeting him and hoping that her star power doesn't overpower his talent.
