According to a report by myimperfectlife.com, the majority of Halston shooting locations were in and around New York City in early 2020. However, the shoot was postponed later last year because of the pandemic situation. Mark Ricker serves as the production designer of Halston. He is best known for his work on the Oscar-nominated movie Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom. In the series, several establishing shots are along Fifth Avenue in the fifties.
The scene where customers have lined up to buy the Jackie Kennedy-approved Halston pillbox hat was shot at the IRL department store. The series features many midtown shots done at popular locations like the Plaza Hotel and the Pulitzer Fountain. Some of the scenes have also been done at Central Park, around the Upper West and Upper East Sides during the fall. The designer’s office was located at the Olympic Tower. However, for the series, the lavish office space was recreated.
The series also throws light upon Halston’s leisure time at Studio 54. The real Studio 54 which was once a celebrity-filled nightclub has now transformed into a Broadway theatre. The crew could not film at the real location because of the pandemic, added the report. In an interview with Curbed.com, production designer Mark Ricker revealed that Studio 54 was recreated at New York's Hammerstein Ballroom.
