5 Fashion Forward Films To Stream On Netflix This Weekend

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.'

Film: Iris

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.'

Film: Unzipped

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.'

Would you spend your weekend indulging in any of these films seen above?

마가렛 호웰, 브랜드의 근간을 담은 단편 필름 공개
10분이 아깝지 않다 마가렛 호웰(Margaret Howell)이 브랜드의 근간을 담은 단편 필름을 공개했다. 아름다운 자연과 함께 어우러지는 스토리는 인물 마가렛 호웰의 어린 시절 이야기, 브랜드가 가진 소재에 관한 철학과 제작 과정 등 1970년 브랜드 탄생 이래 50년간의 스토리를 함축했다. 아티스트이자 영화 제작자 에밀리 리차드슨(Emily Richardson)이 제작에 참여했으며, 단편 필름 공개와 동시에 4월 1일까지 런던 Wigmore Street 매장에서는 브랜드 초기에 진행된 작업 및 개인 기념품 전시도 함께 진행 중이다. 좋은 소재와 군더더기 없는 디테일을 머금은 남성 셔츠에서 시작된 브랜드답게 이번 필름 탄생을 기념한 2종의 한정 셔츠도 오는 4월 발매를 앞두고 있다고. 영상 공개와 함께 그녀가 덧붙인 소감은 아래와 같다. 한편의 다큐멘터리를 연상케 하듯 브랜드의 이상향을 담은 영상을 위에서 함께 감상해보자.  " 저는 오랫동안 제 작업에 대해 질문을 많이 받곤 합니다. 어떤 질문은 대답하기 쉽지만, 다른 것 — 특히, 영감과 관련된 것 — 에 대한 답변은 정말 어려울 때가 많습니다. 제 작업은 개인적인 동시에 전문적인 일입니다. 작업의 핵심인 영감은 다양한 형태로 찾아옵니다. 기억, 사람, 소재에 대한 느낌, 만들어진 장소, 머리속에 있는 이미지까지. 많은 부분 직감, 마침 그때 적합하다고 생각되는 느낌으로부터 생겨납니다. 영감을 알아차리는 것이 바로 일입니다. 에밀리와 제가 이 영화를 만든 이유를 말로 설명하는 일은 어렵습니다. 이것을 통해 제 젊은 시절과 저한테 큰 의미를 준, 그리고 여전히 의미가 있는 사람, 장소, 작업과 이미지들을 되돌아봤습니다. 제가 디자이너로서 살아가는데 중요하다고 생각한 것들을 전해주기 바랍니다.' -마가렛 호웰- " 더 자세한 내용은 <아이즈매거진> 링크에서
Make A Galaxy Twisted Tee
On a previous tutorial, I showed you a cute way to make Galaxy Jewelry using some everyday products that you have around the house or in your craft corner. You can click here to see it. I bring it up now because it would go really well with this super cute Galaxy Tee that I found on I Love To Create Blog on Blogspot. Get yourself a loose-fitting black t-shirt and have your sewing machine on stand-by. You will need: Tulip Soft Matte Fabric Paint Tulip Fabric Spray Paint Black T-Shirt Bleach Paint brushes Spray bottle Scissors Pins Tape Get started by: 1. Lay shirt out flat and tape down. 2. Mix water and bleach ratio as 3 parts water to 1 part bleach. Pour into spray bottle. 3. Begin spraying the shirt with mix, focusing on just a couple spots. Once the bleach sets, the shirt will turn red and continue to turn unless you rinse it. If you want more bleaching to occur, spray more as needed. Rinse the shirt as soon as you get the right base color. 3. Begin using your Tulip paint to paint on blotches, swirls and any design that looks like a galaxy. 4. Continue doing this with different paint colors--as many or as few as you like. 5. Mix paint with water as you go along to create different effects. 6. Using a stiff paint brush, flick white paint to get dramatic stars. 7. Let your shirt completely dry and follow this with regular wash and dry cycle. 8. Lay your shirt flat and cut off the sleeves. 9. Flip over, with the back side up and mark the center of the back with a piece of soap or fabric chalk. This line should line up to the bottom of the arm hole. 10. Cut along both shoulder seams. This will separate the front and back. 11. Twist the two back pieces. 12. Pin in place and stitch by hand (or use your sewing machine). Once all this is done, you're ready to hang with your girlfriends and have a totally awesome summer. Don't forget to pair this with a cute bando top or a bralette. You can click here for tutorials to help you make one!
