About:
A portrait of an unheralded figure in the 1970s fashion scene.

The film screened as part of DOC NYC, for which our program notes read:
Antonio Lopez was the most influential fashion illustrator of 1970s New York and Paris, known for discovering talents such as Pat Cleveland, Grace Jones, and Jerry Hall. Filmmaker James Crump takes us back to the swinging seventies when fashion designers and their entourages gained the prominence of rock stars. He explores the intimate relationship between Antonio and Karl Lagerfeld, while unpacking Lagerfeld’s deep-seated rivalry with Yves Saint Laurent. Interviews with Grace Coddington, Jessica Lange, Bill Cunningham, and many others bring this crucial chapter of fashion history to vivid life.
