Halston: Screening at LACMA


Arguably the first American celebrity fashion designer, Roy Halston Frowick​, known by the single moniker Halston, came from a childhood in Iowa to create the sexy-flowing look that defined the 1970’s.  Directed by Frédéric Tcheng (Dior and IDiana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel) and produced by Roland Ballester, Halston weaves a partially scripted format with rare archival footage and intimate interviews – including ​Liza Minnelli​, ​Andy Warhol​, his niece​ Lesley Frowick, and filmmaker ​Joel Schumacher – to create a textured, behind-the-scenes look at the famed designer’s life and the friction between his artistic talents and business pressures. LACMA will screen the movie Thursday night, followed by a conversation with Tcheng and Ballester.
