TV fashion alerts

Yes folks, there's clothing-related TV beyond Project Runway. Starting tomorrow, Thursday September 7, at 8 p.m. (the website neglects to say whether that's 8 p.m. Eastern only) the Sundance Channel will be showing "signé Chanel," which follows the creation of a couture collection for Chanel. Be warned, there will be lots of the "evil one," aka Karl Lagerfeld, but I'm also hoping there will be lots of the actual work, too. Starting Friday, September 8, the Style Network will be showing "Seventh Avenue specials, original programming, special installments of your favorite shows and hours of footage featuring the best-received looks and most celebrated celebrity appearances." In other words, lots of filler in between, if we're lucky, video of the actual runway action. Check out www.sundancechannel.com and www.eonline.com/Style/ in case the channels deign to supply us with more details.

That Chanel coture documentary is really great - we got it here on BBC2 about 6 months ago, and I've still got all 6 episodes saved on my Tivo! As a hobbyist sewer, I found it absolutely fascinating to see the amount of work, detail, and hierarchy (and sweets!) that go into a coture collection. Require viewing, even if you only catch the last half of the episodes (as I see this was posted last week).
