Antonio Lopez (1943-1987) was a well-known NYC fashion illustrator who (for part of his career) had received work commissions through both Vogue and Elle magazines.

Lopez's association with the likes of pop artist, Andy Warhol (and others at "The Factory") not only helped to further his career - But, it also introduced him to a very self-indulgent lifestyle of chronic substance abuse and, yes, plenty of promiscuous sex, too.

Through stills, archival footage, and interviews with those who associated (both professionally and personally) with Lopez - "Sex, Fashion & Disco" gives the curios viewer a close-up look at a man who lived his life to the absolute hilt, and then some.

To say that Puerto Rican-born fashion illustrator, Antonio Lopez (1943-1987) lived life in the fast lane would truly be an understatement like no other.

This "Sex, Fashion & Disco" bio-documentary certainly invites the viewer to take a close-up look at the whirlwind lifestyle that Lopez engaged in upon his arrival in NYC in 1969 where he really revved up his motor and shifted into high gear (only to burn out and died of AIDS at the age of 44).
