Put fashion documentaries, Crazy About Tiffany’s and The First Monday in May at the top of your must-watch list this year.

Do you love Dior and I? How about The September IssueMademoiselle C, too? Then you’re going to simply adore this year’s newest fashion documentaries.

Each May, the entire industry looks forward to the esteemed Met Gala fashion exhibition, chaired by influential Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour. How appropriate then that this year’s hottest film follows the conception and execution of 2015’s Metropolitan Museum of Art event, China: Through The Looking Glass.

Only the most illustrious figures in fashion are honoured with the eligibility to attend, but thanks to filmmaker Andrew Rossi’s new documentary The First Monday in May, it’s like the rest of us have finally scored a behind-the-scenes invitation to the exclusive event.

The First Monday in May will debut at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 13, 2016, but the trailer has just been released for your viewing pleasure:

Diamond-loving women of the world fell in love with Tiffany & Co. after the release of Audrey Hepburn’s most iconic movie, Breakfast at Tiffany’s. And since the 1961 film, fans have often wondered: ‘What really happens behind-the-scenes at the famed Fifth Avenue jewellery store?’

Director and writer Matthew Miele, of Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf’s popularity, brings the fashion world another doco, named Crazy About Tiffany’s.

How has the “simple jewelry store woven itself into pop culture to become a global phenomenon”, as the description puts it? We’ll find out later this year.
