Valentino And Other Fashion Documentaries

This big news since Friday is that Valentino released a sketch of the dress he desgined for Anne Hathaway's wedding. You can read more about it here.

Last night the documentary about Valentino that came out in 2008 popped up in my Netflix. It follows Valentino and his partner, Giancarlo, during the year that Valentino planned his 45th anniversary celebration. Valentino comes across as a lovable genius, with five English bulldogs running amok. Definitely a life worth emulating.

Since I'm a big fan of understanding what you are buying -- and not blindly draping oneself in labels -- I found other documentaries about different designers. Definitely a good way to spend Sunday Funday
