Evansville Living

Honestly Halston

I sat in my kitchen on the phone for hours with Sue Watkins, the younger sister of late American fashion designer Roy Halston Frowick, who is most famously known as Halston. The Halston. The world-famous Halston. The designer who conquered the fashion world in the late 1960s and 1970s and who called Evansville his home, his roots.

Culture

Monte Skelton

When the City of Evansville played host to the annual Indiana Conference of Mayors last year, organizers wanted to show off the community’s best talent. Among the line-up of entertainers invited to perform was University of Evansville student Monte Skelton. For Skelton, 21, taking the stage came naturally. The Evansville native has been performing publicly since he was a child when he and buddies formed a band to play in a talent show. That middle-school jazz ensemble later went on to take top honors at the Indiana State University Jazz Festival.
