Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

There's no end in sight to the fashion documentary trend—and, boy, are we glad.

Premiering at the 2010 Tribeca Film Festival: Ultrasuede: In Search of Halston, a documentary by Whitney Sudler-Smith that combines archival footage, photographs, 3D effects (will there be Halston-theme 3D glasses?) along with extensive interview footage with experts and cohorts such as Andre Leon Talley, Liza Minnelli (Halston's BFF), Anjelica Huston, Pat Cleveland, Diane Von Furstenberg, Stephen Burrows, Naeem Khan, Ralph Rucci, Billy Joel, Nile Rogers, Bob Calacello, Glenn O'Brien, Jim Moore, Cathy Horyn, and Amy Fine Collins.

Whew. I think we just reached our bold-faced name quotient for the day.
