Halston set to make another catwalk return
Now the New York brand is setting its sights on New York Fashion Week next February, according to the company's chairman and chief executive officer, Ben Malka. Of course it also helps that Malka, who is the former president of BCBG, has injected $20 million into the struggling label to keep it going. His plans for a return to the catwalk in 2013 have clearly been helped by this boost in funds.
"We are very well-funded, so I don't have to worry about that. The money was put in by myself and my partners in a big way," he told WWD. "The amount is enough for us to screw up for a long time."
