Really the first “celebrity” designer of our time, at least in the context of what we now know celebrity to be – Halston is a fashion icon and symbol of decadence and glamour whose fashion contributions still stand up today. Fresh from the Tribeca Film Festival this cool and intriguing documentary highlights the mans rise as America’s biggest name in fashion, all the way to his eventually death from AIDS. I have seen loads of interview about this film and quite a few clips and trailers, so I am excited to finally take the time tonight to check it out. For those with comcast on demand you can get it right now and watch it with me. Let me know what you think! The trailer for “ultrasuede” is below featuring two of my favorites – Liza Minnelli and Lauren Bacall.
