Unzipped by Isaac Mizrahi
This is him with the incredible, late Eartha Kitt (RIP Eartha :(((( ).
You know him as the mastermind behind Target, but did you know he was the star of a documentary which chronicles the creation of a collection? It includes his inspiration, designing, fittings, and runway show. All the supermodels are in it, in all their 90s glory: from Linda Evangelista, Naomi Cambell, Kate Moss, Christy Turlington, Cindy Crawford, Giselle.... pretty much everyone ... oh Amber Valetta.... Shalom Harlowe... so... everyone. :D
Here is a link to the film online!
Note: This film was my first introduction to Andre Leon Talley, editor-at-large at American Vogue. Talley styles Michelle Obama, and is from North Carolina. More on him later!
Paris is Burning
This film isn't strictly about the fashion industry. Instead, it's about men who are serious about fashion-- gay african american men in Harlem, NYC in the 90s. This is the bittersweet tale of the beginning of fashion voguing (a-la Madonna, a-la Benny Ninja from the House of Ninja on ANTM). These men have difficult lives but use fashion and balls as a way to escape and create a fantasy world where they feel safe and fabulous.
