“Dior And I” … Coming Soon to a Mansion Near You

August 18, 2014 at 10:03 pm Leave a comment


This Thursday evening, on the lawn of Doris Duke’s Rough Point estate (quite apropos as the heiress fashionista wore a number of Dior pieces through the years), step inside the House of Christian Dior with a “privileged, behind-the-scenes look” at the creation of Raf Simons’ first Dior Haute Couture collection as Artistic Director. Per Liza Domnitz  of the Tribeca Film Festival, “Filmmaker Frédéric Tcheng follows up his work on excellent fashion films, including Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel and Valentino: The Last Emperor, with another masterful exploration of a towering fashion institution. In Dior and I, one enters the storied world that is the House of Christian Dior with a privileged, behind-the-scenes look at the creation of Raf Simons’ highly anticipated first Haute Couture collection as the iconic brand’s new Artistic Director. From conception through its ultimate exhibition, the process is shown to be a true labor of love by the stoic Simons and a dedicated, charming, and often humorous team of collaborators. Beautifully melding the everyday, pressure-filled components of fashion with an elegant reverence for the history of Dior, Tcheng’s colorful homage to the seamstresses of the atelier is nothing short of magical.”dior-and-I
