Dior and I was nothing short of a mesmerizing glimpse into the working of the worlds most celebrated fashion house. This documentary captured eloquently the working of an artists mind. It shows Raf Simmons take a plunge into the couture work.Simmons, a ready-to -wear designer struggles with the art of mastering a couture line; that to, in a short span of 8 weeks. It also shows the language barriers between him (Belgian) and the workers. The behind the scenes gives you a beautiful glimpse into the creation of couture. These are not just garments, but the evolution of thought, love and effort. It portrays the love a creator has for his creation. The last bit was definitely the most enticing of all- the final moments where everyone waited for the models to walk the ramp- with tense faces and bated breaths. If you have a heart for fashion, this is definitely a must watch!
