In 2012, legendary French fashion house Christian Dior Couture announced the appointment of designer Raf Simons as its head Creative Director. DIOR AND I takes a privileged, behind-the-scenes look at the high stakes, high tension makings of Simons’ debut haute couture collection and how it returned to the origins of the house of Dior. The film also takes an intimate, cinema vérité-style glimpse at the inner workings of the Dior atelier, capturing the entire eight-week process up until the premiere of Simons’ collection. This includes the little-seen atelier workers-the heart and soul of the fashion industry-some of whom have sewed for Dior for decades and do so with an unbridled passion. Together, they form a support system for Simons and help to create his masterpiece collection, with every line they sketch and bead they sew. A whirlwind of creativity, stress, determination and triumph,DIOR AND I marks the third fashion film for writer/director Frédéric Tcheng, who previously co-wrote and co-directed Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has to Travel and co-produced Valentino: The Last Emperor. DIOR AND I had its World Premiere at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival.
