Here, for the first time in its entirety, is the full length documentary by Alexa Chung for British Vogue. Guided by questions from the viewing public from all over the world, Chung investigates fashion from the inside out. Rather than a world that is frivolous, elitist and unprofitable, Chung proves that as an art form, an industry and most of all as a career choice, fashion can be underrated and holds masses of opportunity for anyone who wants to get involved. More than this, she shows that from Olivier Rousteing to brand-new graduates, there's heart, dedication and humour.

I wonder how many horrible and disgusting secrets this industry hides that this pathetic naive 'documentary" ain' t even recognizing.
Magdalena Duma (18 days ago)
I'm confused, the documentary is called the future of fashion but there was no talk about the future, just how things are now, not where they are heading. Perhaps your next one should be "Fashion Now" and talk about the future?

Omg thank you for this piece . It was very educational. I’m a designer in the making. I always wonder if a minority middle age woman will get an opportunity to work in the field. Because everyone seems to be very young. I’m going to be 50 years old I’m talented . I had to put my dreams on the back burner because of my children I’m wonder if there a place for us older ladies.

This is an interesting marketing/pr piece to counterbalance the criticism of the industry. It largely ignores the fact that many of the negative stereotypes of the fashion industry are rooted in FACTS supported by thousands of people over many decades. Alexa is white (passing), tall and naturally thin, done. Minus one of those qualifiers her experience of the industry and access to the industry would be very different. Even the admission of nonavailability of formal information for the lay person to access employment in the industry is an indictment. I did enjoy Olivier Rousteing input.

most of the general public is too busy, out of area, and can’t afford ‘fashion’ as decreed by the industry

I've worked in architecture/engineering my whole life and after 15 years I'm throwing it all away to venture into fashion, Ive always loved fashion but like the question Alexa asked.. "is there money in fashion , that parents wouldn't support their children going into fashion"... the answer is .. the Fahsion industry is bigger than the automobile industry :) yup. I'm moving in that direction.

Odd how this programme claims to be about Fashion & the crazy world that lies within it yet every single person associated with the "Real" fashion world is wearing very basic standard branded and plain clothing while still trying to tell us wearing stop signs and weird rope for a belt and my favourite, shoe polish on a face um what TF is this? Not that I am knocking it, if you can convince people to spend money you are doing something right. But instead of trying to sell the idea of it's legitimacy, try walking around , actually, not for a shoot or on a runway, wearing shower curtains with a dish soap container glued to your waist and show me how it's fashion. A Hand cut, sewn and tailored suit is true fashion, made for the individual not off some rack.

Well in my opinion, the catwalk is an instrument that is used for understanding the fashion demand. Fashion designers produce garments and introduce them to the public on the runway. The more "votes" per garment determines the taste of the target market at that particular time. The way that new designs are presented, determines the success of that image and therefore sets a trend.

I work in the fashion industry in LA. I love this, I can't explain to people who ask about my job, how it's more than playing with fabric, and putting clothes on models. It's art, it's mathematics,it's exhausting, it's invigorating and yes some days I wish I was saving lives. But then I remember how, what I help create affects other people. Thank you for This video.

Samantha Peters (11 months ago)
My female ancestors always made their own clothes. When I was under 10yrs old I could knit, make lace, and use a sewing machine. My grandmother was disappointed in me when I turned 11yrs old, and I wasn't a seamstress. My mum taught me how to make basic patterns, and sew the materials. After I left school, I went to a fashion designing course. The problem I faced was my teachers refused to grade my work. They accused me of cheating. Even through I did all my work at the fashion course. I went to other fashion courses, where they all said I didn't have what it takes to get in the fashion industry. The teachers would ignore, and bully me in class. Students would watch, but not say anything. So I gave up. An elderly lady once asked me "what's your talent?" I said "I can do seamstress work, but none of me teachers think I can do it." The elderly said "they failed, they don't want you to succeed." I didn't believe her. I thought she was just being nice to make me happy. After watching this documentary I've realised I'm very much needed in the fashion industry. I think I'm going to get into the fashion industry. But I won't use my real name. I don't need failures that have used, and bullied me to sabotage me.

There is nothing new under the sun. What about fair trade and environmentally sustainable at fashion industry?
Samantha Peters (11 months ago)
Mónica Salas , technology helps in that area now. The main problem is fast fashion. Fast fashion is only popular for four weeks, and cheaply made with cheap material. Than they are tossed out The expensive clothes are high quality, with high quality materials, and last many years. I have a short green skirt made in the 70's. It's high quality made, using alpaca wool.

I love your presence and beautiful personality Alexa. Some constructive criticism to whomever - lately I've been coming across interviews that get ruined by the interviewer saying "Right", "Mmm hmm", "Yeah" "Mmm hmm", "For sure",... This absolutely interrupts the viewer's ability to hear the person being interviewed. In casual conversation we do this as a sign that we are listening to who is speaking when in reality it is only highly distracting, bringing the attention of the viewer back to YOU (Alexa), constantly. Thank you, I appreciate your energy, perspective, and insight into the industry. But please be more aware of your voice and when not to speak.

Mr Funky (1 year ago)
So there...count on one hand how many people of color you see in the background much less featured as a real designer in this doc.......the politics of class and race is always a factor to those who don't factor in !!!!!!!
Samantha Peters (11 months ago)
Mr Funky , it depends on what the customer wants to see. In general Asians don't like seeing Asian models. They prefer seeing Russian models. Majority of models need to have a straight slim nose. Middle eastern, Latino, Asians, etc models will happily go get a nose job. But if an angency mentions that to a black woman, everyone knows there's going to be problems. So agencies don't mention nose jobs to black women. If a designer decides looks don't matter. Than the designer will have no problem hiring a person that doesn't have the desired nose.
Agent Orange (1 year ago)
I found the first 90 seconds of the video to be rather insightful and as a means to reinvigorate fashion as more than conspicuous consumption. However the term "fashion" as it pertains to this series and its association with the Vogue brand make it vividly clear they're referring high fashion or designer fashion, they're not talking about general fashion labels. You see and that's where her argument falls on deaf ears for me, designer fashion  by their very virtue are brands that garner and seek out a specific clientele, that's to say they're catering to folks who have large disposable incomes. People who have thousands of dollars to spend on a couple garments, psychologically aren't purchasing these items because they're the prudent rational choice financially. If that was the case they'd be shopping at discount stores like masses, so supporting high fashion and their designers fits the exact mold of frivolous conspicuous consumption and to state otherwise is hogwash!

Alexa Chung is the perfect presenter for this - I'd assume she'd already have a good rapport/relationship with the people she interviewed here considering her status. I can't imagine any other journalist asking the question at 59:06.

Peter Mullen (1 year ago)
Fashion is serious, being the equivalent of feathers, and wattles on a bird displaying attractiveness, power, wealth, health, ability to reproduce, and resources to provide support for progeny. It may often be an expression of inner joy, aggressiveness, confidence. Sometimes it's a deception, but it is the process of tricking / attracting a mate, and building a status image in the rookery. Beyond that, it reflects a poetic, abstract representation of modernity, and cutting edge sociological development. At the same time it also represents the sickening propensity of wealthy weaklings, power mongers, inflated egos, and self interested leeches to display their "perceived" superiority, whether justified or not. The artistry makes it worthwhile. It's roll in reproduction is inevitable. It's ability to manipulate consumer psychology is undeniable. It does represent a world of excess. It seems inappropriate, in some way, for a world of dangerously shrinking resources. Let's never forget it's a huge multi billion dollar "industry", that uses a vast amounts of material, labor, and human resources to survive. I suppose it's better than building weapons. Increasingly it seems the weapons are used to protect the oligarchic wealth of the elite. Soldiers and millions of innocent civilians die to protect the power and wealth of the purchasers of $200,000,000 couture dresses. Think about it. Fortunes need protecting, and that means violence at some point. There is a direct correlation like it or not.
