From Iowa to Studio 54 to Wall Street, fashion design Halston lived an American dream. Halston captures the epic sweep of the life and times of legendary designer Roy Halston Frowick, the man who wanted to “dress all of America”.
Acclaimed filmmaker Frédéric Tcheng (Dior & I) expertly weaves rare archival footage and intimate interviews with Halston’s friends to make a case for the designer as a lost genius, switching from biography to financial thriller to re-enactment as the mystery unravels. A vivid evocation of 1970s New York, full of warmth and wit, Halston traces the meteoric rise and fall of an American icon.
