Doll, you’re just in time to share a glass of bubbly with us as we toast our chic friend, Cameron Silver, on his new job as the fashion director of H by Halston, a new clothing line inspired by the work of Halston, the great American designer of the ’70s. Let’s face it, Silver couldn’t be more sterling for the job. A fashion historian, author, and the co-founder of Decades, the vintage fashion boutique in Los Angeles, he knows better than anyone how to bring Halston’s slinky and sexy party frocks into the modern age. And, like Halston, who was a fixture at Studio 54 back in the day, Cameron knows a thing or two about parties. Join us as we celebrate Cameron’s new position and learn more about his chic entertaining style.
