Dior and I

Documentary examining the arrival at fashion house Christian Dior of new creative director Raf Simons. A low-key and subtle film which suffers from the sense that it could have gone further (the dismissal of Simons' predecessor John Galliano is not mentioned), but with some slyly observed moments and engaging personalities.
This film is not currently showing in cinemas.
After the abject departure of John Galliano, Christian Dior hired Raf Simons as its artistic Director. It’s soon clear that while Simons has an impressive vision to present an updated New Look in an ambitious catwalk show, the eight week schedule will put his new colleagues under great pressure. 1940s archive film and excerpts from Dior’s autobiography are combined carefully with fly-on-the-wall footage of the shy Simons, his spritely assistant Mulier and their gifted and very entertaining atelier staff.
