Loic Prigent is the director of two of my favourite fashion docos. Signe Chanel and Marc Jacobs & Louis Vuitton.
I've watched Signe Chanel twice now and still my jaw drops when one of the seamstresses is told to remove two rows of beading from the waist of an Haute Couture dress.
I watched Marc Jacobs & Louis Vuitton for the first time yesterday on Youtube. It was interesting to compare the two designers. You had Karl Lagerfeld who almost had an aversion to touching fabric, instead he sat behind a desk and everyone did everything for him. Then you had Marc Jacobs in the workrooms zipping about on a desk chair, pins in mouth, cutting fabric on the dummy.
