Synopsis

Antonio Lopez was the most influential fashion illustrator of 1970s New York and Paris. He was 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.
