Filmmaker Whitney Sudler-Smith reflects on the life and career of Halston, the celebrated fashion designer who clothed some of the most glamorous women of the 1970s. In addition to making sure that clients like Elizabeth Taylor and Jacqueline Kennedy always looked their best, Halston also left a permanent mark on the fashion industry as the creator of the fabric Ultrasuede, and was known for being a notable fixture of the New York nightclub scene. Later, after selling his business for a mint, he watched as his hedonistic empire crumbled under the weight of Nancy Reagan's "Just Say No" antidrug campaign. In 1990, Halston died of AIDS at age 57. Interviews with such friends, critics, and collaborators as Anjelica Huston, Stephen Burrows, Billy Joel, and Amy Fine Collins offer a complete picture of the man who changed the face of modern fashion, and did it in a style all his own. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
