Full Frontal Fashion: Habillees Pour L’Ete 2010

I just discovered this gem of a documentary.

HABILLÉES POUR L’ÉTÉ 2010 (DRESSED UP FOR SUMMER 2010) covers the Spring 2010 collections in New York and Paris, with Mademoiselle Agnès taking a particular interest in spotlighting the next generation of designers. In New York, she finds much cause for excitement in the likes of Proenza Schouler, Joseph Altazurra, Jason Wu, Thakoon and several others. Then it’s on to Paris, where Mademoiselle Agnès sets herself the daunting task of attending as many runway shows as possible; not only the heavy hitters, but also the perennially individualistic and the relatively low-profile.

I really love these videos and Mademoiselle Agnès is hilarious. I was intrigued by the smaller designers the documentary profiled.
