Learn how the iconic costumes and sets were created for Halston, a new limited series streaming now on Netflix, in an intimate conversation with costume designer and FIT alumna Jeriana San Juan (The Get Down, The Plot Against America) and production designer Mark Ricker (Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, Escape at Dannemora). This creative team will discuss how they brought the world of the American fashion icon to life, often drawing on assets found at The Museum at FIT (MFIT) and the college’s Special Collections and College Archives for inspiration.

Moderated by Raissa Bretaña, who teaches costume design and fashion history at FIT and is also an alumna, the talk premiered Monday, May 24, on Vimeo
