Dior and I

Dior and I by Frédéric Tcheng
2014 –
France – 90 min

As part of the film series So French, so Fashion! the Cultural Services of the French Embassy presents a screening of the documentary Dior and I.

“I have an idea but it’s very extreme.” In April 2012, Belgian fashion designer Raf Simons is announced as the new creative director at Christian Dior. He has eight weeks to create from scratch, a brand new Haute Couture Fall-Winter 2012 collection. Focusing on the 1950s, Raf Simons played with some of Christian Dior’s famous silhouettes, such as the Bar jacket, to create a line with a modern, yet classic feel.

Bringing the viewer inside and behind the scenes of the Christian Dior fashion house, this riveting and intimate documentary shows the everyday, pressure-filled work of “minimalist” and couture-newcomer, Raf Simons, and the many small hands with great talent, constantly drawing and stitching surprising, yet fascinating pieces.

In English with French subtitles.
