3. THE PARADISE

4. DIOR AND I

5. THE FIRST MONDAY IN MAY
The First Monday in May is a chilling documentary about the Met Gala. See what the fashion industry sees, beyond just looking at the celebrities on TV. This film takes you inside the Met, showing you the many different definitions of ‘art’. The film is narrated by fashion elites, and also covers the effect of Alexander McQueen’s death on the fashion industry. “The show must go on” is an understatement in this enlightening film.
6. CONFESSIONS OF A SHOPAHOLIC
If your only tie to fashion is as a consumer then The Confessions of a Shopaholic is a classic. This movie is based on the best-selling series of novels Shopaholic written by the UK author Sophie Kinsella, so if you love the movie, maybe pick up a book!
