I have a free cinema pass for you, an invitation to enjoy my British editition of fashion documentaries and, undoubtedly, some of the most wonderful, inspiring and heart breaking stories that will change the way you look at fashion and people who create it.

1. John Galliano, the documentary was filmed as a part of The South Bank show and broadcasted hours before Galliano revealed his very first Haute Couture collection for Dior. This is one of the very first documentaries that focuses on John Galliano, the designer to know and follow as well as his blossoming career at Givenchy and, now, Dior. Yes, it takes place in Paris, but for me, it is still more about Galliano, one of the most fantastic Brits who changes the history of fashion. The rest, that overbearing, overwhelming grandeur and the lights, are still just the back drop, a stage (theatre or life, if you like) where everything took place. It's very special, for the fashion, for the history, the  people. and also because I absolutely love Galliano's passion for the craft and beauty and how this love reflects in Johns eyes and makes his face lit up instantly. Watch it right here, on the blog.

2. Another gem focusing on John Galliano is a story of a visionary, from his days at Saint Martins to the moment he took over the house of Dior, told by the designer himself as well as people who admire his talent. Again, a lot of Paris, but as they say, you can take a Brit out of England, but you'll never take England out of the Brit. Apologies about the quality.

3. If you are anything like me, McQueen & I will leave you with tears in your eyes and an a lump in your throat. From his childhood and days at Saint Martins to his Givenchy moment and rise to stardom as Alexander McQueen, this is a chance to see him again, listen to the stories as told by  his mother, Joyce McQueen, brother Michael, Isabella Blow, Suzy Menkes, Godfrey Deeney, Tom Ford and lose yourself in the world of McQueen. It will leave you heartbroken.

4. Vidal Sassoon: The Movie is a story about a man who "changed the world with a pair of scissors" and became one of the most well-known and successful hairdressers who defined the odds, changed his life and turned the art of hairstyling into an art. Incredibly inspirational!

5. Paul Smith: Gentleman Designer is a film I turned to from time to time for a burst of joie de vivre vibes, inspiration and positive attitude. Yes, the documentary about one of the most legendary British designers, is focused mainly on Paul Smith's menswear collections, but trust me, you will never regret watching it and falling in love with the man himself, a little bit because his energy and love of his profession are absolutely infectious!
