“The creativity, opportunity and mystery inherent in the fashion industry has always sparked curiosity and intrigue. When the team at Misfits and Fremantle shared their ambitious plans to tell the story of how the industry grew to become the global behemoth it is now, we knew Sky Documentaries would be the perfect home for this captivating story.” – Poppy Dixon, Director of Documentaries and Factual at Sky
