Movie review score

What’s it about?
A beautiful behind the scenes fashion journey following Raf Simons as he creates his first collection as creative director of one of the most prestigious haute couture houses in the world, Christian Dior.

What did we think?
Cindy Nelson says: This story is as beautiful in subject as it is told. Much like the dreamy dresses you see being hand sewn by the masters at the height of their profession, director Frederic Tcheng has woven the history of Christian and the freshly anointed prince Raf Simons’ technique as a designer, vision and aesthetic seamlessly. Despite being acutely aware of the awe inspiring final runway presentation that was the finale and climax to the film, I was still overwhelmed by the “oohs”, “ahhs” and simply lost count of the number of “wows” that audibly filled the cinema throughout the screening. Dior and I is one of the best fashion documentaries of all time. And be warned – a simple bouquet of flowers will never be enough ever again. Sublime.
