DOCUMENTARY, USA, 2019. DIRECTOR: FRÉDÉRIC TCHENG. RUNNING TIME: 98 MIN.
“You are as good as the people you dress.” Roy Halston Frowick
An intriguing ‘rise and fall’ story in a thrilling film-noir-style documentary about the designer Halston who put America on the global fashion map – from Jacqueline Kennedy’s hats to the top of the fashion world in the 1980s when he challenged the luxury and sophisticated Paris scene at the Palace of Versailles. Director Frédéric Tcheng creates a fully rounded portrait of Halston from the homophobia he faced to the lavish lifestyle he embraced, and the clash between creativity and commerce when the designer sold not only his name but also his soul. “From class to mass” is how best to describe the life of this legend.
