It's officially the weekend.
If you happen to be like myself and like to spend your weekends relaxing with your feet kicked up, this card is for you. If you spend your weekends partying [this card might be a better fit for you], but you're welcome to stay if you choose. While we all love the idea of Netflix and chill, I feel you would love it even better if you were watching the right films. If fashion happens to be your life, skip the comedies and the romantic flicks for the night and tune into something a little more on the stylish side.
Thanks to Netflix, there are several films for those who have a keen eye for fashion and what better way to spend your weekend than curled up on the couch catching up with Iris Apfel and Bill Cunningham. Trust me, your Friday evening won't get any better than this. Fashion is life. If you agree, keep scrolling and check out the fashion films streaming on the 'flix' below.
Film: Jeremy Scott: The People's Designer
Synopsis: 'This documentary was released last year and just made it's way onto Netflix. It follows Moschino Creative Director Jeremy Scott as he prepares for his first few Moschino runway shows, and provides insight to how he went from a "farm-boy" to one of the most divisive figures in fashion today. It also provides interviews with both his critics and his many celebrity fans. What makes this documentary stand out from the others is that Jeremy Scott is an outsider in the fashion industry. He's not creating clothes for critics but for himself and his fans. This documentary is vital to any fan of his pop-culture inspired lines.'
Synopsis: 'Iris Apfel has a long history in the design industry, having worked in textiles and on design restoration at the White House for nine presidents. This documentary shows an intimate look into this extraordinary woman's career and her extensive collection of accessories. Her unique variety of costume jewelry even starred in its own exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute in 2005. This documentary will make you fall in love with Iris, her sassy and sweet personality, and the fact that she seems completely indifferent, if not a little surprised by her fame.'
Film: Dior And I
Synopsis: 'If you've ever wondered what it's like for a new designer to take over as creative director of a storied design house, this documentary shows you in detail. In 2012, Raf Simons became the new creative director at Christian Dior after several seasons with Jil Sander, earning him a reputation as a minimalist. Frustrated by his new reputation, Simons took over a house known specifically for its femininity and romanticism. The film follows Simons and his team as they work to live up to the iconic standards at Christian Dior. It also shows the many people we don't normally hear from, including the textile makers and seamstresses, who hand-stitch the dresses and who are just as emotionally invested in the garments as the designer himself. This personal look at Dior is emotive, memorable, and should not be missed.'
Synopsis: 'After a poorly received collection, this film follows young designer Isaac Mizrahi as he embarks on the creation of his Fall 1994 collection. Directed by Mizrahi's then-boyfriend, Douglas Keeve, the documentary gives viewers an incredibly intimate look at Mizrahi's artistic process, personal relationships, and the chaos behind the glamorous runway. Among the mayhem of the runway show are amazing glimpses of a young Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, and Linda Evangelista in the height of the supermodel era. Unzipped is the classic, fun fashion documentary all lovers of style will adore.'
Film: Bill Cunningham New York
Synopsis: 'Depending on how immersed you are in the fashion industry, you may not recognize Bill Cunningham, but this unassuming man riding around New York on a bicycle taking photos has been called the "inventor of street style" and Anna Wintour herself has said, "We all get dressed for Bill." This documentary shows how the New York Times style photographer uses every frame of reference he can, not just runway shows, but also how average consumers choose to wear items, to predict trends. Although he is a huge influence in the fashion industry, he stays away from fame and money, saying, "If you don't take money, they can't tell you what to do." This documentary is really a tribute to a man with a deep love of fashion who refuses to sell out.'
