Designer Roy Halston Frowick – best known simply as Halston – was a key figure in the seventies fashion world, his unique designs instant classics. His entourage – as this documentary shows - defined a very particular aesthetic style. Through a combination of archival footage and interviews with friends and associates, director Frédéric Tcheng explores the life of Halston, a man whose career was littered with firsts not just in fashion but also in culture and business.
Tcheng, whose previous works include credits for Dior and I and co-directing Dianna Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel, has an appreciation and understanding for fashion, design and culture that makes Halston essential viewing.
