This is definitely a must see for everyone in or around fashion! The absolutely fantastic series "The Day Before" published by Arte and directed by Loic Prigent!
It captures 10 fashion houses 36 hours before the seasonal runway show with all the hustle and bustle that goes with it at this particular stage. You can catch a glimpse of the fittings in the ateliers with the designers making last minute alterations meaning more sleepless hours for the loyal and dedicated seamstresses, which is particulary mad in the Jean Paul Gaultier episode. Experience the work chemistry between Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough of Proenza Schouler, watch Sonia and Nathalie Rykiel choose and discuss the runway looks and set up a giganto runway show, and experience iconic and never short of words Karl Lagerfeld for Fendi. I like the interaction between designer and stylist at Diane von Fürstenberg, where in one scene Diane makes a suggestion for a runway look, and the stylist rigorously dismisses her idea, stating that she already did that in the last show, with Diane respecting and accepting her decision.
This series is as enjoyable as it can get, it's great entertainment and a reality check for anyone wanting to enter the fashion world, and there is so much to discover that it's a pleasure watching them in repeat.
