4 Fashion Must-Streams

4 Fashion Must-Streams

| On 05, May 2020

It’s like fashion photographer Bill Cunningham said, “Fashion is the armour to survive the reality of everyday life.” And, with everyday life looking a little like the start of the apocalypse, it’s time to suit up with some fashion show must-streams.

For your at home, socially distanced, fashion fix, try these four fantastic fashion shows:

  1. Franca: Chaos and Creation

Francesco Carrozzini, the son of editor-in-chief of Vogue Italia Franca Sozzani, celebrates the chaos and creation of his mother’s influential fashion editorials.

Carozzoni’s first feature-length film follows his mother’s illustrious career and how it affected their relationship. He explores Sozzani’s fashion revolution by interviewing her close friends and fellow fashion icons, like Karl Lagerfield and Australian director Baz Luhrmann.

The mix of fashion and family makes for a touching exploration of motherhood, fashion, and the sacrifices needed to shake up the industry.

  1. Fashion’s Dirty Secrets: Stacey Dooley Investigates

British journalist Stacey Dooley undresses the fashion industry.

Fast fashion, or the act of reproducing trends inexpensively for the mass market, is the third worst industry for the environment, only beaten by coal and oil. In this documentary, Dooley investigates the environmental impact of our fast fashion addiction and the true cost of cheap fashion: polluted waterways.

Although it’s confronting to see, Dooley’s documentary is a wake-up call, both for how you’ll see major fashion retailers like H&M and Top Shop, and how you’ll view your own wardrobe.

  1. Styling Hollywood

Behind every beautifully dressed celebrity is a celebrity stylist, who’s life is as intriguing as the celebrities they dress.

Styling Hollywood is a reality show that follows stylist to the stars Jason Bolden and his husband Adair Curtis, who owns an interior-design practice. The series showcases the work that goes into dressing for the red carpet, and the work that goes into maintaining a relationship with two competing egos and successful careers.

Styling Hollywood is a rare reality gem: it focuses talented and empowering individuals, while offering an exciting glimpse into celebrity style.

  1. 7 Days Out

7 Days Out focuses on the world’s biggest events, including the Chanel Haute Couture Fashion Show.

In episode 5 of the show’s first season, director Andrew Rossi was given unprecedented access to Karl Lagerfeld’s 2018 Haute Couture Fashion Show. The 45-minute episode shows the work, talent, and stress that goes into creating a runway worthy of Paris Fashion Week.

Lagerfeld’s Versailles garden inspired fashion show is beautiful to look at, but 7 Days Out goes beyond the beauty and showcases the blood, sweat, and tears that are necessary to create a fashion spectacle.
