Fashion documentaries have become a big part of the fashion industry ever since the film The September Issue was released. Fashion followers flocked to see the movie to get an inside look at the offices of Vogue and the people who work there.
Now a new crop of fashion documenaries are coming out that are not only showing the life of designers but also tackle the tougher issues to do with the fashion industry
Traceable is a documentary that is set against the backdrop of the fast-fashion industry and our increasing disconnect of where and how clothing is made, and the humans that create a garment. It follows emerging designer Laura Siegel’s journey across India to source and produce fabrics for her own collection. Plus, the documentary will air on Fashion Revolution Day which also marks the anniversary of the Bangladesh garment factory collapse. The movie will air on April 24th at 8pm on MTV, M3, E! and Bravo.
