The Day Before: Lanvin
Wednesday, 8pm, Studio I was once trapped at a fashion runway event in Melbourne. Because the thing was being televised I was disinclined to stumble over those lapping it up beside me. It wasn’t the catwalk creations that bothered me, for they were rather fascinating — it was the looks on the faces of the models, as if they hated everyone and everything. Like the walking dead, one followed another, each with a more contemptuous look on her face that rose to an almost murderous intensity. The Day Before follows a series of fashion designers for 36 hours before significant runway shows. Now I understand why the models look so miserable. Find out what goes on in the world of French fashion house Lanvin as visionary designer Alber Elbaz prepares for takeoff.
