    Lightbulb Tom Ford VISIONAIRES Documentary

    Just a short film (for a doco) that should interest any Tom Ford fans, or really any creative, design-loving individual. I don't remember him actually talking about his fragrances but nonetheless, you grow another level of appreciation for the effort and genius behind the brand.



    Sorry, may have posted this in the wrong forum, but it will get more views here.

    Me too! I was already a fan of his style, and I had a sneaking respect for him as a thoughtful designer, but his secretive nature really stood in the way of feeling strongly about his talent. Sometimes, I wondered if he was really as talented as I thought, or just masking some kind of good luck with a refusal to let people see the empty house. But no more! I'm really thankful that he let people see the real Tom Ford, who I think is even more substantial than I had ever imagined or hoped! Great documentary, too. Really well done.

    3-5 baths a day? That must be a very stressful life he inhabits.

    Enjoyed this immensely. Thanks broxwood .

    Having watched it all now, it's very apparent that this "documentary" was made by Tom himself. It's incredibly egocentric, but enjoyable, none the less.

    For a much more exciting and thoroughly wonderful documentary on fashion I recommend that everyone try to get a copy of Signé Chanel. It's so candid and refreshing, and what an amazingly rare opportunity to meet the women who cut & sew everything at the Chanel Atelier. The technical problems they face trying to translate Mr. Lagerfeld's sketches can take them weeks to overcome, only to find out he's cut their garment from the collection. You even get to meet the ancient, eccentric artisan who creates all their braid trims....that is, when she's finished the work on her farm..."Chanel can wait."

    It's much better that The September Issue, which is also great. Karl Lagerfeld Confidential is also quite good. He is such a campy, pretentious, old maid...yet some how you like him. It's always good fun to watch the wealthy elite work so hard to be unhappy over mere trivialities. He mentions going clubbing with YSL and Givenchy as youths and the copious amount of hairspray YSL used. They show some old footage of him happily spraying away and the reaction of everyone behind him in the room backing-off. Greatly entertaining and very cheap to pick up on DVD. The Chanel is a good deal more expensive, but VERY worth it.

    It was nice. Made by the The Oprah Winfrey Network, so you can't really expect any critical questions

    Other fashion documentaries worth a look; the double feature "Yves Saint Laurent - His Life and Times/5 Avenue Marceau 75116 Paris". The last one is a behind the scenes look at the creation of YSL's 2001 spring collection. They are both quite slow and studious but well worth seeing.
