THE SEPTEMBER ISSUE (2010)
Fashion is a religion, and Vogue is the Bible

Who could forget the fashion documentary that started a revolution? Anna Wintour, the legendary editor-in-chief of Vogue magazine for twenty years, is the most powerful and polarizing figure in fashion. Hidden behind her trademark bob and sunglasses, she has never allowed anyone to scrutinize the inner workings of her magazine. Until now. With unprecedented access, filmmaker R.J. Cutler’s new film THE SEPTEMBER ISSUE does for fashion what he did for politics in THE WAR ROOM, taking the viewer inside a world they only think they know.

THE TENTS (2011)

New York. The name is enough to make fashionistas weak at the knees. But only a few years ago, New York’s now-famous fashion scene was a mess of mismanagement. THE TENTS traces the genesis of New York as a fashion powerhouse, the success of which is linked almost exclusively to the setting up of “The Tents” at Bryant Park, which finally brought the couture together under one (removable) roof.

Featuring interviews with world class designers and fashion personalities such as Caroline Herrera, Michael Kors, Tommy Hilfiger, Betsey Johnson, Carson Kressley and Miss J Alexander, THE TENTS is an insight into the coveted and glamourous world of New York’s fashion scene…and how it almost failed.

DIANA VREELAND: THE EYE HAS TO TRAVEL (2011)

Diana Vreeland was a fashion visionary whose impact was legendary, influencing and creating the style of such icons as Twiggy, Jacqueline Onassis, Lauren Bacall and many others. Over the course of 25 years beginning in 1937, when she started writing for Harper’s Bazaar, Vreeland established herself as a controversial iconoclast with an astonishing ability to invent and discover fashion ideas, designers, personalities, and photographers. In the ‘60s Vreeland moved to become editor-in-chief at Vogue where she defined the fashion of the era. DIANA VREELAND: THE EYE HAS TO TRAVEL guides us from Paris to New York to London and through Vreeland’s life, adventures, accomplishments and passions.

SAINT LAURENT (2015)

Meet the man behind the name. Saint Laurent is a spectacular celebration of the famous and flamboyant designer’s artistry, drive and inspiration. This fascinating biopic focuses on Yves Saint Laurent at the zenith of his celebrity and explores his relationships, neuroses, addictions and insecurities. Gaspard Ulliel delivers a charismatic and compelling performance as the tortured iconoclast, ably supported by Aymeline Valade and Léa Seydoux as his muses, Louis Garrel as a preening model and Jérémie Renier as Pierre Bergé . Saint Laurent’s fall from grace and his subsequent rise to fame are well known, but this fascinating film adds new layers to his story of redemption — and be prepared for a continuous display of covetable garments that serve as a reminder of the true genius behind the aloof façade of Saint Laurent.

DIOR AND I (2015)

DIOR AND I is a tantalising ‘behind-the-seams’ glimpse at the making of Raf Simons’ first haute couture collection for Christian Dior in 2012.

Established in the fashion world as a minimalist designer, Simons has both his reputation and the legacy of Dior on the line when appointed Creative Director of the iconic Parisian brand. With only eight weeks to complete the collection, Simons and his dedicated group of collaborators work against time to make his vision a sublime reality. Melding the everyday, pressure-filled world of fashion with mysterious echoes from Dior’s past, the film is also a colourful homage to the long-serving seamstresses at the couturier, as history is once again created at Dior.

BILL CUNNINGHAM NEW YORK (2012)
The film about the reluctant star of New York’s fashion scene

“We all get dressed for Bill,” says Vogue editor Anna Wintour. The “Bill” in question is 80+ New York Times photographer Bill Cunningham. For decades, this Schwinn-riding cultural anthropologist has been obsessively and inventively chronicling fashion trends and high society charity soirées for the Times Style section in his columns “On the Street” and “Evening Hours”. Documenting uptown fixtures (Wintour, Tom Wolfe, Brooke Astor, David Rockefeller—who all appear in the film out of their love for Bill), downtown eccentrics and everyone in between, Cunningham’s enormous body of work is more reliable than any catwalk as an expression of time, place and individual flair.
