The true cost

It’s autumn, the wheater is getting colder and colder and it’s time for movie nights. I would like to offer you a selection of movies about the Great Masters of the Haute Couture. I am not so much into fashion, but the creative world behind the podiums has always impressed me. For me, fashion is more than clothes – it’s about art, history, colourful vision, hard work, precision and great dedication. Are you interested to know the titles of these movies about the great masters of la Haute Couture? Keep reading! 

The first movie about a great master of la haute couture is Yves Saint Laurent (2014)

The first place is for the absolute great master of la Haute Couture – Yves Saint Laurant. The designer which ”The Mondrian” dress represents an entire chapter in the fashion history. The creator who lives in Paris and Marrakech and recreates the colours of both cities in his collections. I highly recommend to watch the movie Yves Saint Laurent and if you have time and you want to know more about the great designer, read his autobiography written by Laurence Benaim.

”Coco before Chanel 2009”

The second place is for the woman who no one could resist – Gabrielle Chanel. ”Coco before Chanel 2009” traces the hardships of this strong and brilliant woman who started to wear men trousers and invented the iconic blazer named after her. Coco Chanel – an intimate life by Lisa Chaney is an absolute reading.

Valentino: The Last Emperor (2008)

Valentino: The Last Emperor (2008) is about the great master of la Haute Couture Valentino. The Italian charm of the couturier will conquer you, I am sure! Watch it out, you won’t regret it!

Dior and I (2014)

Dior and I (2014) is not about the man who created the fashion house Dior, but about the life of the Parisian fashion house after Monsieur Dior. It’s more about the contribution of Raf Simons who joined the house in 2012. This is a movie that will make you realize what hard work, inspiration, and dedication are required to create a collection.

The last movie about a great genius of la haute couture is Lagerfeld Confidential (2007)

And the last one is about the extravagant German who lives in Paris and works for Maison Chanel. Lagerfeld Confidential (2007) is about the icon designer Karl Lagerfeld who opens the doors of his home, studio, and talks openly about his life, his family, his work and his beliefs. A sincere movie about a great master of la Haute Couture.

I hope you’ll enjoy watching these movies about the great masters of la haute couture.
