Get an Inside Look at Halston and the ’70s in ‘Utrasuede: In Search of Halston’
From his celebrity friends like Liza Minelli to archival film footage, see what it was that made Halston a design icon.
In the ’70s – heck, for most of the decade – the “It” designer was Halston. He dressed the stars of the day: Bianca Jagger, Anjelica Huston, Elizabeth Taylor, Liza Minelli and more. His fashion shows according to Andy Warhol were “the art form of the ’70s.”
To understand what an impact he made then and is still making now, check out the new documentary Ultrasuede: In Search of Halston. Director Whitney Sudler-Smith painstakingly researched archival footage, interviewed long-time friends like Liza Minelli, designers Diane Von Furstenberg and Stephen Burrows, musicians Billy Joel, Nile Rodgers, Vogue’s Andre Leon Talley and more.
Owen Glaberman of Entertainment Weekly said, “This film has a grander trajectory than just about any other fashion doc.”
Fashion Week Daily, “This year’s must-see film.”
