Sundance’s ‘The Day Before’ Documentaries Follow Designers Right Up to the Catwalk

Sonia Rykiel is coming the to small screen on
The Day Before.

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. As we've seen, even those locked deep in a thousand-yard stare usually have something interesting to say in these final moments before judgment. Loïc Prigent, director of Marc Jacobs & Louis Vuitton, has created a new series for Sundance. The Day Before will follow Sonia Rykiel , Karl Lagerfeld for Fendi, Proenza Schouler, and Jean Paul Gaultier in the 36 hours before they send their designs down the catwalk. Last-minute model fittings, accessories-delivery drama, and restorative cigarette breaks should all be on the menu. Tune in when the series launches, naturally, on the day before our own Fashion Week starts … if you're not busy doing some hasty restitching yourself.
