The Dior Movement

THE NEW FASHION DOCUMENTARY ‘DIOR AND I’ INVITES YOU TO A BEHIND-THE-SCENES GLIMPSE AT ONE OF THE MOST POWERFUL AND INFLUENTIAL LUXURY HOUSES. GRANTED UNPRECEDENTED ACCESS, FILMMAKER FRÉDÉRIC TCHENG GIVES YOU A VOYEURISTIC PEEK INSIDE THE HOUSE OF DIOR.

Christian Dior created the ‘New Look’, revolutionary in its time and still the defining visual language of femininity. In his memoires ‘Christian Dior & I’, the eponym of the movie, Dior writes of his sentiment; the notion of feeling like two people, both a private individual and a public persona. Sixty-five years on Raf Simons is installed as artistic director of Dior following John Galliano’s dismissal in 2011. Yet again, the absurd idea of bringing a private personality to the public reflects on Dior.

The documentary by filmmaker Tcheng reveals Simons’s first 8 weeks at the house, working on the much anticipated Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2012 debut collection. Simons is captured exploring the Dior archives and intimate moments such as meeting his team for the first time. Tcheng manages to create an un-elaborated film that shows honesty and a rawness not often associated with fashion. It takes us into a world of insurmountable beauty and the pressure on Simons and his team to carry this legacy on. The movie will be out in cinemas today or in the coming – check your area on www.diorandimovie.com.
