THE DAY BEFORE
In 2009, French documentary filmmaker Loïc Prigent made a four-part documentary series called The Day Before, in which he covers the dramatic 36 hours leading up to the unveiling of the fall collections by Proenza Schouler, Fendi, Sonia Rykiel & Jean-Paul Gaultier.
The series was such a success (and is now also available on dvd) that Prigent quickly made a follow-up - in six parts! The second season features six times fifty minutes of deadline craziness starring Alexander Wang & Diane von Fürstenberg (both episodes will be shown back-to-back on Friday), Donatella Versace & Narciso Rodriguez (showing on Saturday) and Nina Ricci & Jeremy Scott (showing on Sunday). It’s like The Fast and the Furious but without the ugly dudes and just one or two less stunts.
The first screening on Friday December 9 (Wang & Von Fürstenberg) will be introduced by Emma Gelaude (MyFashionBlog). After each of the three screenings, ticket holders are invited to have a (free) drink at our temporary FASH!ON/off bar in the lobby of Cinema Zuid. Please note that the documentaries are in English (with no Dutch or French subtitles).
