If you’re a fan of French luxury goods company Dior and you’re curious to learn more about the brand’s history, then the brilliant documentary film by French-born filmmaker Frédéric Tcheng entitled Dior and I is a must-watch.
Tcheng was given unprecedented access to expertly document how much hard work and dedication goes into creating a haute couture collection, as the film captures behind-the-scenes footage of the eight stressful weeks that Raf Simons’ had when creating his first haute couture collection as the brands new artistic director in the spring of 2012.
The film also gives viewers a glimpse of the inner workings of the design house, from the tireless-but-passionate seamstresses of the atelier, to Raf Simmons’ creative process – all while paying homage the legacy of Christian Dior.
Speaking of his vision for the film, Tcheng said in a statement, “The house of Dior is a storied world where managers, artists, and workers collaborate on a daily basis to create a vision and I consider the film to be an ensemble piece. Through immersing the viewer in the world of Dior and revealing the extraordinary effort required to produce a collection, I hoped the film would ultimately reveal a cross section of Parisian life, in the tradition of great French social realists like Renoir and Zola. Who is the “I” in the title Dior and I? I strived to keep the answer open to many possibilities.”
Dior and I was presented at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York and the Sydney Film Festival last year to a small audience, but will be released to the general public in Sydney on March 26.
