DIOR AND I

2013 (MIFF 2014)

Director: Frédéric Tcheng

Peek behind the scenes of the fashion event of a generation.

The unveiling of a new clothing collection by the House of Christian Dior may be a regular occurrence, but it's not often that a fresh artistic director takes the reins of the iconic label. Dior and I delves into the dramas and designs of newcomer Raf Simons as he prepares his maiden line for the beloved brand, after several years designing edgy menswear for Jil Sander and his own eponymous label. Known for his minimalistic style and coming from a ready-to-wear background, his first dalliance with Dior haute couture is fraught with trials, but also flirts with triumphs.

Bounding from the ever-busy atelier to the ravishing runway, director Frédéric Tcheng continues his love of documenting the details of the well attired, in a fitting successor to Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel and Valentino: The Last Emperor.
