New Halston Documentary To Premiere At Tribeca Film FestivalApr 2, 2010 @ 12:40 pm
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!
