Good Fashion Documentaries
I need some help in finding some good documentaries about fashion. Anything really. All from the life of Chanel, to known photographers, Fashion Editors and more...

Any clue?

Regards,

Camilo

I liked The Secret World of Haute Couture. it's a BBC documentary that 'explains' the process of haute couture, the reasoning behind the prices and the people who make it, buy it and why. it's very interesting and quite recent, it was filmed during the S/S 06 Haute Couture season, I believe.

my favorite is a little gift I recently got from MissMagAddict (), it's called 'Notebook on Cities & Clothes', it's the most beautiful and eye-opening film about fashion that I have ever seen, it's directed by Wim Wenders, shot in the late 80s and it's basically about the world of Yohji Yamamoto... his life, thoughts on society, his vision on fashion, what he goes through when putting together a collection.. all that jazz. it's lovely and definitely worth every minute and cent of it.

I just saw "Marc Jacobs + Louis Vuitton" last week and I have to say, it was fantastic. Regardless of whether you like or loathe Marc, it offers an entirely realistic view of what it's like putting out a collection and putting on a runway show.

It shows the real side of fashion design, sleepless nights, stressful days, deadlines....plus, it offers some really wonderful insight into his normally cryptic way of designing.

Marc Jacobs & Louis Vuitton is one of the greatest fashion docs out there, definitely! Of course, it was made by Loic Prigent, the same creator of Signe Chanel. I've learned great things about Marc Jacobs and how he creates his collections. And the documentary even showed how he created that limited edition tribute patchwork handbag he made for the LV SS07 collection!
