"French women dress like armchairs," says Pierre Bergé, "Since people do what they want, there's no need for new fashion dictators like we had before." In Habillées, the new series from Sundance's Full Frontal Fashion, Mademoiselle Agnès confronts Bergé about the lack of new talent in Paris and questions the decision to award the ANDAM award to a Brit, again. She wants the energy from New York, and the passionate support of its young designers, to be matched in the French capital where instead, the big old fashion houses blur out the young and the fresh. The narrator laments, "There's energy in Paris, but to find the talent, you must look under the carpet!" The cameras follow Mademoiselle Agnès from Rodarte's front row face-off between Tavi and Anna to Alber's quiet thoughts on, "What happened to fashion? To this generation?" post-show and on an underground search for new voices on the Paris fashion scene. If you've the slightest interest in fashion, watch it now on Sundance.com.

We love Joe, and we love what Sundance has done with its Full Frontal Fashion series, so this all sounds fantastic to us. Especially if he ends up running around New York City in a furry outfit.
