Ewan McGregor is set to make his debut as legendary fashion designer Halston in Netflix’s limited series of the same name.
The limited series centers on Halston as he leverages his single, invented name into a worldwide fashion empire that’s synonymous with luxury, sex, status and fame, literally defining the era he lives in, 1970’s and ‘80’s New York — until a hostile takeover forces him to battle for control of his most precious asset…the name Halston itself.

The family is not exactly happy with the upcoming series at all.
The Halston Archives, which was founded and is still run by the designer’s niece, Lesley Frowick, has issued a statement about the show, and has blasted it as “inaccurate” and “fictionalized.”
“The Halston Archives remains the only definitive and comprehensive source on the man and his legacy as the personally appointed custodian of his private papers and effects,” the statement reads, via People.
It continues, adding that The Halston Archives “travels the world to bring the meticulous history and original design work of Halston to reputable venues with comprehensive exhibits and seminars.”
Netflix’s Halston is set to premiere on May 14. Watch the trailer here!
