Riveting, even for those not of the fashion world.
17 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Knowing little about the fashion world, I was a little intimidated expecting this to be a film about the history of two haute couture power houses. I was pleasantly surprised when it actually turned out to be the story of an artist.

While haute couture may be an acquired appreciation, this film is specific in its focus - it is about an artist and his process. Following Marc Jacobs from show to show, as him and his team build and remodel designs at a neck breaking pace, the filmmaker leads the viewer through a journey which ultimately leads towards a better appreciation of high fashion as a truly unique art form.

With seemingly unlimited access to the workshops and houses, Marc Jacobs is disarmingly pleasant to watch. As the first American designer to be creative director of the Louis Vuitton fashion house, the film does a good job of explaining how and why he and his designs are so successful. The documentary also discusses his work in contrast between his projects at his eponymous design house and how they differ (or resemble) those at the legendary Louis Vuitton.

Movies about artists are common enough, but rarely does one provide such insight on the fashion world and its artistic process.
