The new limited series Halston from hitmaker Ryan Murphy stars Ewan McGregor as fashion designer Halston (born Roy Halston Frowick). With filming locations predominantly in New York City, the sets and scenes recreate the hedonism of 1970s and 1980s New York. Halston also features Bill Pullman, Rory Culkin (from Succession), Vera Farmiga, and Krysta Rodriguez who plays Liza Minelli. Expect sex, drama and high fashion. Untapped New York’s very own Nicole Saraniero also has a spot playing a photographer in a fashion show! Without further ado, Here are the fabulous filming locations from Halston!
After a quick flashback to Halston’s early childhood on Indiana, the first episode cuts quickly to Fifth Avenue where Halston crosses the Pulitzer Fountain in front of the Plaza Hotel and enters Bergdorf Goodman department store. The venerable fashion institution was founded in 1899 and once had a 17-room penthouse apartment on top. The interior scenes at Bergdorf Goodman, where people are lining up to buy Halston’s pillbox hat which Jackie Kennedy wore at JFK‘s inauguration, are filmed inside the real store on 58th Street and Fifth Avenue. Unfortunately for Halston, the trend was short-lived, when hats became less trendy.
