Warhol produced images to run as adverts for Halston in Interview and promotion in Halston store.
Both Halston and Warhol, were pleased to be identified with each others 'brand'.
Warhol was now working with a new print assistant, Rupert Jasen Smith, a gifted artist in his own right, and a genius with silk screen prints. His knowledge refired Warhols enthusiasm for the medium. Warhol gave Smith credit for his innovation, on the diamond dust pictures for example, Warhol said "The diamond dust fell off of one of Rupert's pictures on to one of mine."
Warhol and Smith experimented with print methods and inks, on this richly colored print they utilised both flat and gloss inks to give it an amazing depth and presence.
This printed skirt in silk comes with a crinoline petticoat and crystals heat press applied on parts of the skirt and on the Warhol signature. It is a beautiful piece that incorporates the works of two very important personalities in the American culture.
