Our List of the Best Fashion Documentaries

Our List of the Best Fashion Documentaries








I am putting a list together of documentaries to watch about fashion, icons, designers, labels and photographers etc. Many of those documentaries are a window into vintage Tokyo/Paris/New York.

Bill Cunningham: New York (2010) is an amazing story of this photographer who lives  below his means to support his passion. Bill is the epitome of what a true photographer is. Happy, lively and always on the lookout for a great shot, you will be impressed with this man who truly loves his job.


Let’s be real, I found ” YSL L’Amour Fou” interesting as that was basically a giant ad for the Christies auction of his possessions! Even though some of them are done with lovely insights, advertisers are smart  and some documentaires masquerade as advertising.

For your info, I watched most of those documentaries but a lot of these I haven’t seen yet:

– The September Issue (2009)
