Halston was America’s first celebrity fashion designer. He seemed to have it all until things went in a downward spiral. Halston is a Netflix limited series that is executive produced by Ryan Murphy and stars Ewan McGregor in the lead role.
The series encapsulates and shows us the meteoric rise and fall of an American fashion designer who built a massive empire for himself only to see it all crumble before his eyes.
Netflix just released the trailer of Halston a couple of days ago and it’s got a melancholic undertone to it that aptly displays what one should expect from this biographical limited series. Apart from Ewan McGregor, one can also see Bill Pullman and Rebecca Dayan play essential roles in this project. Halston is directed by Daniel Minahan. It is written and created by Sharr White.
Halston is the story of Roy Halston Frowick who was called ‘Halston’. He rose to fame in the 1970s for his elegant fashion sense. He achieved great fame in his limited life span but had to endure a lot of struggles for his orientation and apparent genius.
Halston rose to fame when he designed the pillbox hat which Jacqueline Kennedy wore to the inauguration of her husband John F Kennedy in the 1950s. while still attending ‘School of the Art Institute of Chicago’ Halston had begun his business of making and designing women’s hats.
While he gained a lot of popularity he decided to dive into the women’s clothing line and after some bad business decisions, was forced to lose control of his fashion house. He died of AIDS-related cancer in 1990 at the young age of 57
Halston will premiere on Netflix on 14th May.
