5 Fashion Documentaries to Watch on Netflix

May 13, 2016

I go through phases with Netflix, sometimes I just binge watch a TV series, sometimes I’m all about the films, but right now I can’t get enough of their documentaries. In particular, I’m loving fashion documentaries right now. They are perfect for chilling out at the end of the day and getting a little inspiration. I thought I’d share 5 of my favourites with you so you can check them out on Netflix (right in time for the weekend)

The True Cost



I’ve spoken about this documentary so many times on this blog (read my thoughts on The True Cost here). If you haven’t seen it yet you really have to sit down to watch it. This documentary looks at behind the scenes of the fast fashion industry, showing you how our clothes are made and by whom. It will completely change the way you view fast fashion (this documentary is one of the reasons I started my capsule wardrobe changing the way I shop)




Iris is a documentary following Iris Apfel, who is one of the most fabulous women ever. She has one of the most amazing collections of clothes and accessories and has such a unique sense of style. Iris is most definitely not a minimalist but she certainly is an inspirational woman, it’s just a lovely documentary to sit and watch (even if it’s just for her outfits).

Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf’s

This documentary gives you a peek behind the scenes of the luxury department store Bergdorf Goodman in New York. I know I’ll never be able to afford to shop there, but that doesn’t stop me wanting to know how the other half lives. Check this out if you want to pretend your rich for the evening (just don’t listen to the prices)

The September Issue

This documentary goes behind the scenes at Vogue (AKA the fashion bible). The film follows Anna Wintour and gives you a unique insight into the inner workings of Vogue and what exactly goes into creating its famous September issue.

Advanced Style

I loved watching this documentary about some of New York’s most stylish senior citizens. It’s basically fashion bloggers in 50 years and it’s fabulous! These women are so inspirational with their amazing style and energy. It goes to show that growing old doesn’t mean you have to grow up. This is a lovely documentary to sit and watch with a glass of wine in the evening.

  2. Although I am supposed to start working on my dissertation soon, be preparing job interviews, etc. I feel like watching one of those documentaries is a great idea (or a great way to procrastinate) �� Anyway, I will definitively have a look (And how perfect, my boyfriend happens to have netflix!). Thank you for the great read! 🙂
