Still from Dior and I

Dior and I, Design Synergy

I just watched Dior and I, a documentary that explores Raf Simmons’ first couture collection with the iconic fashion house Dior. What I love about this documentary is that it explores every corner of the design process. From visionary Raf to the seamstresses and tailors that work to make the show a reality.
One of the story conflicts is the ever present lack of time and the challenges one’s superiors introduce in any design team. A successful project is the effort of many and the documentary communicates this, while showing the challenges of each in the team.
