True to its name, Black Halo finds inspiration in the beauty of contradiction. From architecturally structured dresses, to modern draping with Madam Gres roots, designer Laurel Berman fuses rebel with romance to create a collection at once both edgy and feminine.
Born in Spokane, Washington, now based in Los Angeles, Berman’s unassuming allure and relaxed confidence translate into each of her designs with an effortless spirit. Studying at the San Francisco Academy of Fashion and working in many capacities for various brands within the industry provided the foundation needed to create and execute her vision.
Through the wildly popular “Jackie O” Dress, Berman transformed the way women dress today with the simplicity of a single piece. With a blend of flawless construction, impeccable tailoring and an aesthetic that both references and reinvents classic glamour and sex appeal, Black Halo is able to consistently present its customers unique silhouettes.
Since its launch in 2002, Black Halo has expanded from its Los Angeles roots becoming an internationally renowned brand. The collection made its national debut in the US in 2003 at Nordstrom and in 2008 at Harvey Nichols in London, and today can be found in 1500 stores worldwide
