Frédéric Tcheng's solo directorial debut brings the viewer inside the storied world of the Christian Dior fashion house with a privileged, behind-the-scenes look at the creation of Raf Simons' first haute couture collection as its new artistic director-a true labor of love created by a dedicated group of collaborators. Melding the everyday, pressure-filled components of fashion with mysterious echoes from the iconic brand's past, the film is also a colorful homage to the seamstresses who serve Simons' vision. (Rated R, 1 hour, 30 mins)

“The documentary offers a privileged behind-the-scenes look at the workings of a business. It's also about the difficulties of the creative process, the running of an organization, and the adjustments that must be made when a new boss is in town.”- Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle

"’Dior and I’ intimately demonstrates the tricky balance between art and commerce, between perpetuating a mythology while attending to the bottom line, and doing it with the pressure of a ticking clock.”- Christy Lemire, RogerEbert.com
