Fashion Design (Documentaries)

[originally published 27th November 2015]

Couple of years ago a friend sent me the link of an article about the documentaries you should watch if you love fashion.

Designing the content of this subject I remember I didn’t watched all of them, so it became as a part of the learning knowledege I have to get on that subject.

Here they are:

Today I just watched Annie Leibovitz: Life through a Lens (2007)

Diana Vreeland: The eye has to travel (2011). I watched it two years ago and I totally recomend it.

Sweatshop – Deadly Fashion. It wasn’t in the documentaries movie’ list that you should watch if you love fashion. But it must be. It must be in everyone’s list, even if you don’ like fashion. Because everyone is used to buy clothes and it’s about who makes our clothes. I watched one year ago and I totally recomend it. This is also what it is happening into fashion market today. You can watch all the episodes here with English subtitles. (It’s a Norway miniserie)

Signé Chanel (2005). I still have to watch it, but first I want to watch Coco Chanel the movie and Coco before Chanel.

Bill Cunningham New York (2010). I knew about it when it was launch, I watched it and as I was expecting I was not disappointed. Love the passion and every visionary detail that man spread into his job.

Lagerfeld confidential (2007). I didn't watch it.

Valentino, the last emperor (2008). Neither it.

The Secret World of Haute Couture (2007) -BBC Documentary. I didn’t watch it and there isn’t trailer available on YouTube. But I think it will be worth it to watch it.

The September Issue (2009)

The Day Before (2009)

Scatter my ashes at bergdorf’s(2013). I watched but I have to do it again, I remember I liked it but would be interesting to get on it another time.

McQueen and I (2011)

The Director (2013)

In Vogue: the Editor’s Eye (2012)

Unzipped (1995)

Marc Jacobs & Louis Vuitton (2007)

Advanced Style (2014) Being in London on February 2012 a friend and I met with one of the ‘ladies’ this movie talk about. And I can say she was not nice at all when we just kindly asked her if we can take her a picture because we loved her style. Despite it, I think it will be interested to watch that film.

Iris (2015)

Mademoiselle C. (2013)

Dior and I (2014)

I suggest you to watch all those documentaries with the perspective to learn about fashion industry but also being critic, having an outsider perspective. It will help you to analice and understand it having a global/bigger vision.
