Alder Manor as Versailles in Halston

Halston agrees to do the show in Versailles, pressured by Eleanor and with Norton Simon covering all the costs. In New York City, when a production needs a grand mansion, the Alder Manor in Yonkers is the location where all the fashion designers are putting the last touches on their collections for the show at Versailles.

Built as the W.B. Thompson Mansion, it later served as a Catholic school, a college, and later run by an Irish-American organization called Tara Circle. The Alder Manor is often rented out for events and for film shoots. The shoot takes across a large number of rooms in the Alder Manor, showcasing the beautify of this site. The grounds of Versailles, shown in the backdrop of the terraces, is added via CGI.
