Our featured film brings the viewer inside the storied world of the Christian Dior fashion house with a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of Raf Simons' first haute couture collection as its new artistic director. "Dior and I" intimately demonstrates the tricky balance between art and commerce, perpetuating a mythology while attending to the bottom line, and doing it with the pressure of a ticking clock. The film also shines a light on the toil it takes to create a look that's effortless -- the meticulous structure and its painstaking detail that make a gown float ethereally. Melding the everyday, pressure-filled components of fashion with mysterious echoes from the iconic brand's past, the film is also a homage to the seamstresses who serve Simon's vision.
