Editorial Reviews

Feel like fashion? The Story of Fashion, with star designer Karl Lagerfeld, presents 100 years of fashion from the inventor of haute couture, Charles Worth, to the leading labels of the fashion industry of the 1980s. Fashion illustrations, photographs as well as unique footage reflect the Zeitgeist of the different periods, enchanting the viewer as the atmosphere of international catwalks is conjured. On its excursions to the different fields of fashion, the trilogy moves through cultural history, pointing out trendsetters from art, music and film, and portrays a great number of influential fashion designers such as Poiret, Chanel, Schiaparelli, Quant and Dior. Along with Lagerfeld, the designers Giorgio Armani, Pierre Cardin, Donna Karan and the critic Carrie Donovan afford us fascinating insights into the sensual world of fashion.

Created in the 80's and once available on VHS this is literally a history of fashion in the 20th Century. Don't hope for Louis XVI forward - it begins with Worth. The historical footage is fantastic as it traces, not clothes hanging on manenquins as you'd see in a retro museum exhibition but fashion as worn by contemporary people with the right hair, makeup and accessories. A young-ish Karl Lagerfeld sketches the silhouettes throughout and explains the entire look and evolution of each style. He's good and pretty objective. The American version of this originally contained some obvious cuts to 80's TV programs (Dynasty) which may not have been part of the original or the DVD set. It ends, of course, at the time of it's creation, the 80's - so you won't get the style evolution to the present. I'm delighted this is now available on DVD. Take it for what it's worth - a rare look at the clothes - worn at the time they were comtemporary - by the people who worn them. Then go to the museum to see the workmanship in a static surround.
