Three fashion insiders – Michelle Elie, Casey Spooner and Violet Chachki – share their accessory-strewn lives in this vibrant front-row-seat documentary.
Drag artist and Season 7 winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race, Violet is always on the go, so rushed she ends up squeezing into couture outfits in the back of a taxi. OTT fashionista Michelle, a former model who now calls the streets her catwalk, struggles to fit a week’s worth of attire into her car. Musician and artist Casey spends every dollar on clothes and now he’s behind on the rent. This fabulous threesome is Italian director Gianluca Matarrese’s guide to the fashion world’s inner sanctum. A highly competitive domain – not exactly cut-throat but certainly fickle – it’s all down to who-you-know and how-you-look and that makes Fashion Babylon a colourful and highly entertaining watch.

Screens with Tank Fairy.
For Matarrese, the fashion world is like a royal court, ruled by its king, Jean Paul Gaultier, and queen, Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour.
Leo Barraclough, Variety
The pressure of being fabulous all the time takes its toll.
