Documentaries document things (duh) and aim to be educational. The good ones, though, won't make you feel as though you're sitting in history class. After all, they're still films and should be entertaining. Fashion documentaries are no exception. By the grace of the film gods, there are ones actually worth watching.
Now, you might be asking yourself, "Why the hell should I watch films about fashion?" The obvious reason is to learn more about designers and their brands. But at times, these people and companies are relatively private, so it's also about having access to information you probably won't see elsewhere. Documentaries, unlike short interviews, offer more in-depth looks at the people and things that make up the industry. There are also cameos from hot supermodels. So there's that.
If you're not sure where to start, we've come up with a list of the best titles. These are available on DVD, Netflix, or YouTube (if you don't mind watching them in a series of clips), so they shouldn't be hard to find. From a look into Karl Lagerfeld's life, the murder of Gianni Versace, to Yohji Yamamoto in 1989, here are the 10 Fashion Documentaries You Need to See.
