Documentary About Elie Tahari is Now Available for a Limited Time
“The United States of Fashion Designer Elie Tahari,” directed and produced by David Serero, received the Award for “Best Director of a Documentary” by the Berlin Indie Film Festival, received Honorable Mention at the London International Film Festival, and was selected for several film festivals across the world.
The film, the first documentary ever produced about Elie Tahari, filmed in 2020. This highly anticipated documentary tells the life of Elie Tahari from his birth and origins (born in Israel to Iranian parents), through all of his achievements and legacies. Part of the documentary is also dedicated to Tahari’s creative process and endurance in the fashion world. Fashion personalities such as Fern Mallis (aka the Godmother of Fashion), Melissa Rivers, fashion designers Nicole Miller and Dennis Basso, Arthur S. Levine, Wall Street Journal fashion journalist Teri Agins, Meshi Kleinstein, Instagram influencer Julia Kananovich, artist Lynna Davis, disco music, models, Studio 54 and more, are all part of this documentary.
Fashion Designer and Mogul Elie Tahari has been living the American Dream for more than 50 years. He came to New York from Israel in 1971, with less than $100 in his pocket, slept on benches in Central Park, and went on to build a billion-dollar fashion empire.
Due to film festivals not opening until 2022, the movie is brought directly to audiences. The film is available for rental at $9.99 on vimeo.com/ondemand/
