Dior and I Documentary
I love a good fashion documentary so I am especially excited to see Dior and I this weekend. The film is by Freédéric Tcheng who was also behind Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel and Valentino: The Last Emperor both of which garnered much praise. Dior and I follows designer Raf Simons and his team for eight weeks as they prepare for his debut at Dior at the fall 2012 haute couture show. But it’s just as much a film about people as it is fashion.
“I feel like fashion is everywhere and it’s very image-driven. Making this film reminded me that there are hundreds of people who actually care deeply about how they make it. It’s not just an image, it’s not just about a dress on the red carpet. There’s a whole story behind it, and it’s a human story.” – Freédéric Tcheng
