Storyline

New York's fashion district - otherwise known as the Garment Center - has always held sway over the imaginations of the style-conscious and those seeking glamour. This little slice of Manhattan has nurtured the likes of retailers and designers - from Hattie Carnegie to Donna Karan - in their quest to create world-class fashions that have made generations of Americans feel and look stylish. It has also provided employment for countless metropolitan area residents and it continues to draw visitors from around the world - many of whom come to study at the prestigious Fashion Institute of Technology. Dressing America will tell a quintessentially American story. Written by Anonymous

Made me want to get out there and create!!
28 April 2015 | by (Tennessee) – See all my reviews

This documentary moved along quickly and was narrated mainly by the interviewees, which worked really well. The camera didn't dwell too long on them and gave us plenty of shots of the city and the designs and life of the subject. That was great. So often we see more of the host or the narrator or the folks being interviewed than of the topic itself.

I would have given it a 10 had they left out Boyarsky giving his dad such a bad time. He only made himself look like a doof. Plus, I've never understood how folks in the image industry use vocabulary that brings up imagery that is disgusting. In many cases, people would rather die than decorate their clothing or homes or whatever w crap, yet they'll decorate their speech with it. Whatever. We were VERY grateful that the producers choose to mute the lowbrow words rather than use that annoying bleep sound.

And it would have been fun to be able to see the hat that Greta Garbo was wearing, since the hat is what they were talking about.

Either way, it's a great documentary and left us feeling appreciative and energetic.
