…If THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA is your favorite movie, or one of the reasons you want to be in the fashion/entertainment industry….then don’t ever speak to me. Your probably a career assistant and absolutely suck at everything you do. Before you ask me anything about fashion or the “biz” kill yourself with the H&M scarf you have on right now!…
If your a movie buff (self proclaimed), or excentric about the tasteful delights in fashion, then I have some really good films about the life in the “Industry”. These are some classic movies that had something to do with my existence in the fashion game to date. Below are a few films to bring up in a social setting that will make you sound like you know what the hell your talking about….
Personally Karl Lagerfeld is one of my favorite designers who has done more for swagger in the fashion world than people think.
The only movie worth watching with Ashton Kutcher in it. Great philosophy on dating in L.A and living the life. Don’t watch it with a date unless she’s the jumpoff!
Valentino will bug you out!..
Really, really, REALLY good looking movie (blue steel face). Will Farrell is fucking HILARIOUS! And with Billy Zane and David Bowie calling the “Walk-off” you’ll have a hard time hearing the movie because you’ll be laughing so much!
Billy D. Williams and Diana Ross had me captivated at a young age when I saw this for the first time. Anthony Perkins with his crazy ass makes a great photographer with a hidden agenda. If your a fashion designer and haven’t seen this, now you have no excuse…
As a stylist and menswear designer this movie was a must see. Jack Taylor was an OG
The only season of PROJECT RUNWAY I actually watched from start to finish, before it moved from the BRAVO network. Jay McCarrol is an awesome fearless designer that innovates and captures his influence in all his work. Very commendable especially from being considered a reality show designer, to becoming a world wide name in 6wks.
Issac Mizrahi is fun to watch period!
There are a lot of fashion films and documentaries out there that are awesome(IF I WERE KING: SEAN JEAN COLLECTION), but these are the ones that at the time they came out, changed peoples perception and gave people a glimpse into the fashion editorial world. David La Chapelle has a cool little short called EYE CANDY: THE CRAZY WORLD OF DAVID LA CHAPELLE. Check it out when you can, he’s a fucking beast behind the camera. All titles are debatable but, in terms of the behind the scenes concept of a world most people don’t know about, these movies did it for me. Not to be confused with stylish movies or OSCAR nominated costume designed flicks, but really good movies to have seen for your own benefit and inspiration…..YOUR WELCOME!
