New Halston Documentary To Premiere At Tribeca Film Festival

This year’s Tribeca Film Festival promises to be packed with style! Not only will a documentary about Vidal Sassoon be making its world premiere at the N.Y.C. festival, but a film about another legendary tastemaker is also set to debut. Ultrasuede: In Search of Halston, a portrait of designer Roy Halston Frowick, will premiere on April 30th. The film documents the glamorous life of Halston, who many call the first true celebrity designer, and includes interviews from some of his famous friends like Diane Von Furstenberg, Liza Minnelli, Anjelica Huston and Billy Joel. The house of Halston has been having a recent revival—the brand’s new president and chief creative officer Sarah Jessica Parker has been spotted in many of its designs—and we can’t wait to watch the story of the man who started it all come to life!

Roy Halston Frowick began his fashion career as a milliner - he designed the hat Jacqueline Kennedy wore to 1961's Presidential Inauguration. His move into womenswear, in the midst of the Studio 54 glamour-fuelled era, marked a crucial moment in fashion history, and Halston's distinctive clean lines and brand of easy elegance became a uniform of the jet set, including Bianca Jagger and Angelica Huston.
