When reading about fashion is not enough, you might find yourself craving some extra insights. Luckily enough, there’s plenty of documentaries you can indulge into. So grab some fresh popcorn and feed your brain as well.
Dior & I
2012 was the year in which Raf Simons became Dior’s new creative director. Considered not the ideal candidate by many within the fashion house, Simons had 8 weeks to prove himself with his first collection (and we’re talking about Haute Couture, no less). This documentary is like an eye behind the scenes of what makes Dior the symbol it is, with a side of runway-related suspense. Soon to be released!
Valentino: The Last Emperor
If you are all about that Italian taste, then you can’t miss this touching, funny and personal close up on Valentino’s life and legacy. Not just fashion, but the passion and feelings that bring it to life are put under the spotlight with incredible freshness.
The September Issue
If fashion is Anna Wintour, then there is no more appropriate documentary about the industry to watch all in one breath. Influencer, celebrity, hard-working boss, Anna Wintour is constantly under the spotlight, especially when it comes to the creation of the September issue, the ‘January of fashion’.
Bill Cunningham New York
“The best fashion show is definitely on the street; it always has been and always will be”, says the number one fashion photographer. Anna Wintour herself declares to dress for him in the morning. “Or he ignores you…which is death!”. This magical documentary is all about the life and work of a talented man who lives for style.
While older beauties conquer the world of fashion, these incredibly energetic New Yorkers tell us their personal stories about style and no age limits. Beautiful and inspiring.
The story of Carine Roitfield, who went from running Vogue France to creating her own magazine CR Fashion Book, in New York. An incredible journey of a woman who knows what she wants.
