As Halston narrates the trailer's opening, he can be seen gazing out the window of his Manhattan penthouse as models wearing his designs fade in and out of the frame.

He is also seen painting designs at his workshop at the beginning of his lauded career before watching his clothing comes to life on the runway and partying up a storm in the Big Apple's infamous Studio 54.

As the trailer comes to an end, Halston asks: 'Do you ever feel like everything you have could disappear in an instant?'
