OPENS OCT 26 AT THE HARRIS THEATER!

The life and career of fashion illustrator Antonio Lopez and his colourful and sometimes outrageous milieu. Antonio  was  a seductive  arbiter  of  style  and  glamour who, beginning  in  the  1960s,  brought  elements  of the  urban  street  and  ethnicity  to  bear  on  a  postwar  fashion  world  desperate  for  change  and diversity.  The  film explores  this  vertiginous  period  through  archival footage  and  stills  of  studio  life  in  Carnegie  Hall,  infamous  venues  such  as  Max’s  Kansas City  and  Hotel  Chelsea,  with  original  interviews  with  principal  characters  on  the  scene at  that time.
