Marco Zanini, head womenswear designer at Versace (er, what does Donatella do then?) has been appointed creative director of Halston. This is definitely a name to memorise, as the newly-resuscitated Halston is owned by Hollywood hotshot Harvey Weinstein. On board already are Tamara Mellon and Rachel Zoe so this is one revival that is almost guaranteed to succeed – with the combined connections of those three alone, they pretty much have everyone in the entire fashion and entertainment industries on side before Zanini’s even sharpened his pinking shears.
