Le Jour d’Avant: Sonia Rykiel

Saturday 18 August 2012 16:30-17:30

In the hours leading up to a runway show, some designers fall into a fury, restitching the stitches, second-guessing the entire collection. Others sip Champagne and wait for the seats to fill. Le Jour d’Avant is a ten-part documentary series by French director Loïc Prigent following designers in the 36 hours before they send their designs down the catwalk.
