Manuel, in creating icons, has become one

The Los Angeles Times profiles Manuel, Nashville's Mexican-American tailor whose designs are featured in a current exhibit at the Frist Center for the Visual Arts.

"Manuel - who uses only one name - has been outfitting tough men in sparkly outfits for 50 years. After immigrating from Mexico in the mid-1950s, he had a hand in creating cultural icons such as the black-clad Johnny Cash and the Grateful Dead's skull-and-rose design."
