The disco anthem ‘Greatest Dancer’ features the line ‘Halston, Gucci, Fiorucci...’. The designer’s iconic status is just one aspect of this compelling profile, hot from its World Premiere at the Sundance Film Festival. Tcheng reveals how a boy from rural Iowa ended up the king of Studio 54 and ruler of a fashion empire. As an elegant socialite with his own couture label, he created a style adored by everyone from Liza Minnelli to Elizabeth Taylor and beyond. Behind his rigorous perfectionism lay dangerous addictions to sex and drugs and a spectacular collapse saw a once household name lose everything. An astonishing range of archive footage and insider interviews give a vivid sense of Halston, the man and his era, before the music stopped.
