Synopsis:

A contemporary look at both traditional clothing and street styles from 38
countries around the world and the influence these two very different kinds of dress are having on fashion
and designers today. Traditional dress from around the globe inspired
the early designs of people like Coco Chanel and Christian Dior. Culture to Catwalk
looks back at the roots of the industry, the backlash against brash
consumerism, globalisation and 'fast-fashion' and that what people are
wearing locally on the streets is once again influencing what stalks
the catwalk (just as at the turn of the century). It features interviews and
quotes from designers and brands including Hussein Chalayan, Rei Kawakubo, Sophia Kokosalaki and many more.
