The 7 Best Fashion Films on Netflix


Everyone knows Thanksgiving break is for hanging out with friends, eating turkey with family and of course, binge watching Netflix on your laptop. But sometimes sorting through the good from bad films can take work. So, for all you fashion-obsessed collegiettes out there, we've put together a guide to the best fashion films on Netflix! Whether you're an aspiring designer, dream of becoming a magazine editor, are trying to break into the modeling world or just want an inside look at the industry, these seven films are the perfect way to spend your days (and nights) on this Thanksgiving break.


Both a biography and documentary, this 1995 film discusses famous designer Isaac Mizrahi’s past, present, and future as he plans to for his 1994 fall collection. The American designer’s relationship to his brand and friends, Mizrahi’s life, worries and creative process are revealed in this 73 minute flick.

Mademoiselle C

Similar to the classic fashion documentary The September Issue, this documentary features stylist/fashion editor Carine Roitfeld and her magazine. After leaving her position as Editor in Chief at Vogue Paris, Roitfeld decides to make a rival fashion magazine and records it all with this film. Our favorite part is being able to see the creative aspect behind her journey and her role as a fashion editor.

Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorfs

As one of the most illustrious stores in the world, Bergdorf Goodman has become a fashion headquarters for people around the globe. Viewers get a rare chance to peak in on the inner workings of the store and learn about its iconic start—you'll see everything from buying meetings with designer hopefuls to the work that goes into creating those brilliant holiday windows.

Bill Cunningham New York

Receiving a 99 percent rating from Rotten Tomatoes, this documentary is an all-around good movie for even non-fashion lovers (we'd recommend watching it with the fam!). The film follows the now 85-year-old Bill Cunningham, a fashion favorite and beloved street style photographer. In this film he shares his love and philosophy on fashion photography, and why he’s still taking film photographs in the 21st century.

Chasing Beauty

For those more interested in the modeling world, this documentary shows all aspects of the competitive field. Popping the bubble on the glamorous modeling industry, the film interviews aspiring models from LA and NYC.

Kell on Earth

While Kell on Earth isn’t a movie, this Bravo TV show still gives viewers a look inside the cutthroat world of fashion. Unlike most documentaries that cover fashion magazines or designers, this show covers the inner workings of Kelly Cutrone’s fashion PR agency. Throughout eight eposides, you get to watch sleep-deprived PR agents battle through fashion week and their own drama—what could be better than that?


If you’re in the mood for a classic movie with iconic dresses, Audrey Hepburn’s Oscar winning film, Sabrina, will do the trick. Costume designer Edith White was said to have closely collaborated with Hubert de Givenchy for this film. Some even say this is the film that started Hepburn and Givenchy’s life-long friendship and collaboration. While this isn't a fashion documentary, this film will take you through the beautiful world of costume design and classic filmmaking.

There you have it, collegiettes—seven stunning films for the fashion lover to take you all the way through Thanksgiving break (and beyond)! What will you be watching now that you have the extra time?
