The Secret World of Haute Couture

How very alluring...
The Secret World of Haute Couture is a documentary narrated, produced and directed by acclaimed English documentary-maker Margy Kinmonth. The title is enough to have you hooked from the first minute, but it's the club members (you'll find out when you watch it) who keep you engaged throughout the film. Margy sets off on a journey around the world to find out what exactly is so special about haute couture, and it's most devoted admirers. What follows is a fascinating, engaging, glamorous 60 minutes of nothing but fashion, fashion and more fashion.
But even more importantly, viewers get a glimpse of some of the most influential people in fashion today (Karl Lagerfeld, anyone?), and the women they're dressing.
The club members are some of the most stylish and glamorous people you'll ever see - some of them even show us what the inside of the wardrobes look like.
Margy takes a particular interest in fashion giant Karl Lagerfeld, documenting the process of designing to creating to presenting that the designer goes through each fashion week. A specific dress (made entirely of feathers) catches Margy's eye, and viewers see this one go from being a sketch on paper, to a full blown haute couture masterpiece.

Did you know that if a dress is not "hand made in Paris" then it is not officially haute couture? Many, many other 'rules', and secrets are revealed in the documentary.
A must-see if there ever was one for fashionistas around the globe.

What brought on this seemingly random documentary review/recommendation, you ask? Well I was browsing through the online pages of fashionista yesterday and came across a post about this documentary. I watched it and loved it so much, I felt the need to write about it.
Dying to see it for yourself? Well, if you missed it on tv, never fear.
