my last "influencers" post, I wrote about Loïc Prigent who is easily the best director of fashion documentaries. Since I focused more on his art of directing and persona in the last piece, I promised to give you an overview of his work in another post. However, I have decided to present to you a broader look on fashion documentaries that showcase different facets of the fashion world. Nevertheless, you can be sure that a great amount of these movies will be directed by Monsieur Prigent.
The World’s 50 Best Restaurants have recently been announced and there were some remarkable changes to last year's list! The biggest one is cetrainly the dethroning of Danish restaurant Noma which was last year's winner and has been the most talked about restaurant of 2012.
In contrast to Nomas experimental approach the new leader is now Spanish El Celler de Can Roca which marks a return of the Catalonia as the world's leading culinary region! From 2006 until 2009, the restaurant El Bulli was holding the torch for Catalonia and is now replaced as the top notch restaurant in Spain by El El Celler de Can Roca.
Germany also made the Top 10 with Joachim Wissler's gourmet temple "Vendome" in Bergisch Gladbach!
You can find the Top 10 after the jump!
This man is one of the most respected guys in the fashion world and yet he is relatively unknown to the masses. In contrast to Anna Wintour who represents the Fahion World and Vogue magazine to an extensive audience, Hamish Bowles caters mostly to those in the know. Through his position as International Editor at Large for Vogue magazine, he has become one of the most respected authorities in the world of fashion and interior design.

Just recently, I read a really interesting article on Lenny Cooke over at the New York Times and it looks like his story was turned into a documentary. Cooke was one of America's most interesting and excelling High School Basketball players back in 2001, but became a sad example of what can happen to these kids if they cannot make the jump into a professional league.
Wow it looks like the fashion world has forgiven disgraced fashion designer John Galliano after he has kept a very lowkey profile and has apologized for his anti-semitic remarks 2 years ago in Paris. I hope that his remorse about his actions in the past was honest because the fashion world has been yearning for some of his imagination and larger than life designs.
