Halston: Screening at LACMA
May 30, 2019 • 7:30 pm(All times are in PDT)
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 I; Diana 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.
