THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO ANDRÉ
Design Schau! Film MCBW FORUM

The Afro-American fashion journalist André Leon Talley has shaped the international fashion world more than any other journalist. But he had to fight for his dream – especially against prejudice!
The intimate portrait sheds light on the life and career of the former Vogue editor-at-large. It was a rocky road from his childhood in the Southern States at the time of racial segregation to his success as an influential style icon. He is feared and loved, has supported and ended careers. His motto: "Fashion is fleeting, but style remains". Fashion stars like Marc Jacobs, Tom Ford, Valentino and Manolo Blahnik, who have accompanied Talley's career, also appear in the film.
