'Halston': Film Screening and Panel Discussion


Free, advanced registration required

Arguably the first American celebrity fashion designer, Roy Halston Frowick​, known by the single moniker Halston, created the sexy-flowing look that defined the 1970s. Directed by Frédéric Tcheng ("Dior and I"; "Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel") and produced by Roland Ballester ("MerPeople"), "Halston" weaves a partially scripted format with rare archival footage and intimate interviews – including ​Liza Minnelli​, ​Andy Warhol​, and ​Joel Schumacher – to create a textured, behind-the-scenes look at the famed designer’s life and the friction between his artistic talents and business pressures. Following the film screening, we will host a discussion with producer Ballester, Halston’s niece Lesley Frowick, and models Alva Chinn and Karen Bjornson.
