The film, directed by Michael Bonfiglio, follows Ford from his return to designing womenswear in September 2010 through the opening of his Los Angeles store in February 2011.

This a very new film that premiered on 23 October 2011, with Estonia being among the first countries to show it to its fashion audiences. A fascinating journey into the celebrated designer-slash-director’s creative process, the documentary follows Ford through fittings for his stunning RTW collection, explores his motivation for directing “A Single Man”, and captures never-before-seen moments from his top-secret Spring 2011 runway presentation.

Ford talks about his emotional struggles, the desire to live life to the fullest and how to keep a creative process interesting by photoshooting the advertising campaigns, making films and managing his own brand and designs. This film looks like a mustsee for Tom Ford fans, fashion lovers and fans of the creative process. It is the pearl of the Monton fashion film programme!



Hailed as a genius, honored by entities from the French government to the CFDA, recognized internationally for his radical innovations and craftsmanship, Yamamoto is a visionary. The documentary tracks Yohji Yamamoto and the global team working on the collection, casting, styling, show production, PR and communication for a short period of time during the Summer and early Autumn of 2009. Beginning with the finalization of the collection and styling for the show in Tokyo, followed by his arrival in New York City to oversee the final touches for the presentation of Y-3’s Spring/Summer 2010 collection, the documentary turns an intimate eye on Yamamoto during fittings, model castings, guitar-playing, philosophical musings, and interactions with his staff and the global team bringing his ideas to life. If you seriously want to see how a real fashion visionary works, this is your only chance.
