On a lazy Sunday, what else is there to do than snack on cookies, drink tea, and watch HuluPlus?
I found a treasure, Masters of Style, a late 90s/early 2000s documentary series about the greatest fashion designers of our time–Alexander McQueen, John Galliano, Jean Paul Gaultier, Michael Kors, Valentino, and Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana of Dolce & Gabbana. It was unreal to see the fashion giants in the 90s: Alexander McQueen and his mentor, Isabella Blow, were still alive and John Galliano had yet to make his infamous anti-Semitic remarks while at Dior. Anna Wintour looks much younger now than she did ten years ago, but Andre Leon Talley looks exactly the same.
The production may not be the finest–it was made during the 80s and 90s after all–but Masters of Style offers a unique, intimate glimpse at how the designers became successful.
Check out the first episode of Masters of Style on Hulu, featuring Alexander McQueen:
