5 Fashion Movies for Summer

With the glorious days we call summer often comes loads of free time to fill. And if you ask us, the best thing about free time is learning all you can about your passion. Our favorite way to gain knowledge of our passion (fashion, of course!) - other than reading books - has got to be movies! There is nothing better than snuggling up on a rainy summer day with a great fashion movie. This industry is made up of such interesting characters all with a story to tell - making these productions educational and so entertaining. Check out our top five favorite cinematic expressions of fashion for quick knowledge of the industry and those within it!

1. The September Issue
 Get the inside scoop on what really goes on during the making of the September issue of Vogue... Get a rare glimpse inside the workings of Anna Wintour and Grace Coddington and all the other creatives at one of the world's most iconic magazines... so not The Devil Wears Prada-esque situation that you would expect.
2. Valentino: The Last Emperor 
Watch designer Valentino Garavani and his partner Giancarlo Giammetti as they prepare for the showing of an haute couture show (2007 spring/summer) and all the work that goes into it. 
3. Marc Jacobs and Louis Vuitton

4. Lagerfeld Confidential

We all dream of sitting beside the runways and possibly getting a glimps backstage. Well, with The Tents you get an all access pass into the inner workings of marvelous shows. Follow a real-life documentation of what goes on in the fashion industry during fashion week - the craziest months of the year.

Truly Yours,

P.S. "Fashion is such a fairytale and it is such a fantasy. And it's about metamorphosis and sort of changing yourself and playing a part that you want people to see." - Marc Jacobs
