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 (director of Dior and I, co-director of Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel) expertly weaves rare archival footage and intimate interviews with Halston’s friends, family, and collaborators including Liza Minnelli, his niece Lesley Frowick, filmmaker Joel Schumacher, model/actress Marisa Berenson, and the Halstonettes. Tcheng frames Halston’s story as an investigation using scripted scenes featuring actress and writer Tavi Gevinson as a young archivist diving into the Halston company records. Dazzling and dramatic, Halston takes the viewer behind the headlines and into the thrilling struggle between Halston’s artistic legacy and the pressures of big business. America’s first superstar designer, Halston created a multi-million dollar empire and personified the dramatic social and sexual revolution of the last century. Moving beyond Halston’s embodiment of 1970s glamour, Tcheng reveals Halston’s lasting impact on fashion, culture and business.
