5 Fashion Documentaries To Binge-Watch This Weekend

Nothing to do this weekend? One suggestion we have is to brush up on your fashion knowledge with a critically-acclaimed documentary. Here are some of our favorites: The September Issue The September Issue This documentary is a must-see for those who are interested to work in the publishing industry, as well as for those who simply love reading magazines. It gives us a very real insight on what producing American Vogue’s biggest issue of the year is like. You also get to observe what it’s like to work with the most notable fashion personalities such as Grace Coddington and Anna Wintour. Scatter My Ashes At Bergdorf’s Scatter My Ashes At Bergdorf's Staying true to its title, this film is all about your favorite department store at Fifth Avenue, Bergdorf Goodman. Get a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to run the 115-year-old store from the words of designers such as the Olsen twins, Tom Ford and Marc Jacobs. Viewers are given the entire experience: from finding emerging designers to the process behind their extravagant Christmas window displays.   Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has To Travel Diana Vreeland - The Eye Has To Travel For those who aren’t familiar with the name Diana Vreeland, she was one of the pioneers of the fashion publishing industry. Through personal interviews, we are taken to this creative woman’s mind to see how she was able to create the most notable fashion trends in her 25-year stay in Harper’s Bazaar. Bill Cunningham New York Bill Cunningham New York Here, we are taken to a day in the work life of 84-year-old Bill Cunningham, one of the best street style photographers of all time.
