When the the iconic Paris Theatre, our uptown Manhattan sister cinema, hosted former Vogue editor-at-large André Leon Talley for the premiere of THE FIRST MONDAY IN MAY, we knew we had to be there for the can’t-miss Q&A.
This high-fashion documentary from Andrew Rossi (PAGE ONE: INSIDE THE NEW YORK TIMES) offers an inside look at the creation of The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s most attended fashion exhibition in history, an exploration of Chinese-inspired Western fashion by Costume Institute curator Andrew Bolton.
In this video from the opening weekend Q&A, Talley offers his thoughts on fashion as an art form while sharing personal stories on his humble beginnings, his style inspirations, and his first life-altering encounters with Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour, fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld, and pop-art genius Andy Warhol.
THE FIRST MONDAY IN MAY is playing exclusively at The Paris Theatre in Manhattan. Tickets are on sale now at www.citycinemas.com.
