In a new documentary, Ralph Rucci draws back the curtains of his close-knit atelier to zoom in on the complex workmanship and hive of activity that led up to his couture show in Paris last fall.

Involved as that was — one ensemble required 140 meters of fabric and 1,000 hours of work — the film reveals the designer’s more offhanded side.
