PICTURE OF THE DAY: Halston Celebrating on the Bridge

Tudor City Bridge, 1968.

Picture of the day is this historic photo showing fashion designer Halston and his business associates, made on the day he launched his own eponymous label, August 22, 1968.

Pictured, from left to right, is Halston, the former celebrity milliner turned budding couturier; Frances Stein, former Glamour editor now a design adviser; Joel Schumacher, boutique owner and future movie director (St. Elmo's Fire, Flatliners, Batman Forever); and Joanne Creveling, former Macy's exec now in charge of the business end of the company.

Although Halston's boutique was on the Upper East Side, the celebratory photos were made on the Tudor City Bridge, no doubt because of its splendid city backdrop.  

More fashion on the bridge here and here.
