For all of you fashionistas out there, we have a treat today: a list of 11 best fashion documentaries on Netflix streaming in 2015.
Much like the best food documentaries on Netflix streaming in 2015, these must-see fashion documentaries offer a rare insight into how the fashion world works, a knowledge usually reserved for insiders and not available to us mere mortals. How fashion empires are run on a daily basis, what’s going on behind the stage, and how haute couture collections are prepared are just some of the questions every fashion lover craves the answers for.
But it’s not all catwalks, naked models, Champagne, and parties. Some of these fashion documentaries focus on the history of fashion and how great names became synonyms for style and elegance. And that history can be quite exciting and entertaining.
These flicks reveal the glamorous world of fashion and show us what is really going on behind the curtains. Sometimes the truth isn’t pleasant and sometimes it’s downright awful, but one thing is certain — it’s always exciting. So, let’s see what secrets the best fashion documentaries on Netflix streaming in 2015 uncovered for us.
