Yesterday I was doing some research and I stumbled across www.fashion-gorgeois.com. These tutorials are worth watching. I learned some things and others I already knew. But, having designer share ideas or the way they work can help others learn. I've always been interested in watching how other designers work. By watching them even if they don't tell you how they are doing whatever it is that they are doing, one can get a general idea on how something is made. (Wondering if that makes sense :/ )Here's a list of the recent documentaries I've been watching:
Valentino: The Last Emperor
The September Issue
Starz Inside: Fashion Film
The Secret World of Haute Couture
Notebook on cities and clothes
• Haute Couture: A Fashion Documentary -- Film Trailer
• The next documentary I'll be watching later this week is Jay McCarroll: Eleven Minutes.• Also the Sundance Channel* has a Series called "The Day Before".
"... Prigent chronicles the final 36 hours prior to crucial seasonal runway shows featuring creations by some of the fashion world's leading designers. ..."
◊ Season Two starts on Sept. 8, 2010
◊ On Sept. 11, 2010 they are airing Season One back-to-back.
