Halston & Liza, together forever... in needlepoint.
Home decor darling Jonathan Adler taps into the Warhol spirit by splashing iconic celeb portraits as eye candy....in this case, needle pointed on pillows to liven up a slow cocktail party...and a reminder of the sizzle of Studio 54.
Halston created a look for (his muse) Liza that suited her imperfect looks and figure perfectly, and became her iconic style...on stage and off.
The spark/magic between visual artist and muse has produced legendary, iconic work that they were unable to create with anyone else.

The Artist/Mentor has to be extraordinarily inspired by his muse and the muse has to be a larger than life female ( or male) archetype and uniquely beautiful/handsome.....and most importantly completely surrender to the will of the Artist. It's often a love/lust affair verging on obsession.
