Fashion Babylon Directed by Gianluca Matarrese 2022 France 88 minutes Unclassified 15+
Drag artist and Season 7 winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race, Violet is always on the go, so rushed she ends up squeezing into couture outfits in the back of a taxi. OTT fashionista Michelle, a former model who now calls the streets her catwalk, struggles to fit a week’s worth of attire into her car. Musician and artist Casey spends every dollar on clothes and now he’s behind on the rent. This fabulous threesome is Italian director Gianluca Matarrese’s guide to the fashion world’s inner sanctum. A highly competitive domain – not exactly cut-throat but certainly fickle – it’s all down to who-you-know and how-you-look and that makes Fashion Babylon a colourful and highly entertaining watch.
