I have introduced you already long time ago to the documentary about the creation of a Haute Couture collection at the House of Chanel. If you are interested in fashion and like to have a glimpse behind the scenes of the famous design houses and fashion magazines, check out those movies!

Valentino: The Last Emperor (2008)
This documentary follows Italian designer Valentino and his partner Giancarlo Giammetti as they prepare for their SS’06 show and a 2007 retrospective of the brand. It deals with the threatening  takeover of the label by a fashion conglomerate which creates tension in a world were Valentino’s autonomy is unquestioned.
