“Making this film reminded me that there are hundreds of people who actually care deeply about how they make it…It’s not just an image, it’s not just about a dress on the red carpet. There’s a whole story behind it, and it’s a human story.” -Frédéric Tcheng
Dior and I brings the viewer inside the storied world of the Christian Dior fashion house with a privileged, behind-the-scenes look at the creation of Raf Simons’ first haute couture collection as its new artistic director—a true labor of love created by a dedicated group of collaborators. Melding the everyday, pressure- filled components of fashion with mysterious echoes from the iconic brand’s past, the film is also a colorful homage to the seamstresses who serve Simons’ vision. Tcheng gets under Simons’ skin – we see the designer’s methods of work, insecurities, vulnerabilities and his ability to cut through the noise. Dior and I is a great fashion movie! It is now playing in the UK/AUS, and opens tomorrow in the US. Can’t wait to see it!
Cast: Raf Simons himself, Marion Cotillard, Anna Wintour, Sidney Toledano, Pieter Mulier, Jennifer Lawrence, Sharon Stone
