    Luxury: Behind the mirror of high-end fashion (fashion documentary) | DW Documentary


    This investigative documentary looks behind the shiny facade of luxury fashion. Shot with a hidden camera, it shows the brutal conditions in Chinese fur farms, and how migrants are exploited in Italian tanneries.

    Fine handmade bags from Gucci, Prada and Max Mara in the displays of luxurious fashion boutiques are objects of passionate desire. Luxury labels generate over 70 percent of their turnover with leather products. But hardly anyone knows the reality of their production. The major fashion brands comply with a modern code of conduct that also applies to its direct suppliers. But who controls the subcontractors? The film looks behind the beautiful displays at where the raw material comes from: tanneries in Italy, where migrants produce the leather for luxury handbags under miserable and unsafe working conditions; and behind the scenes in China’s fur animal industry, where the animals are kept under catastrophic hygienic conditions and before being cruelly slaughtered.

    Gio posted Billie Eilish on Howard Stern's show. Here she is with James Corden.

    They go to her family home, still where she lives, and her brother's room where they recorded her hit album.

    Yeah folks, they recorded it in their family home.

    We get to see her Mom who's very sweet.

    Check out 12:50 where she relates an amazing conversation with her brother, Finneus.

    Lol. At least we can reboot tech. Rebooting people is a mighty challenge.


    I know many millennials. The ones I know are smart, hard working, and definitely not snowflakes.

    Mostly they don't want their parents' stuff, i.e. dishes, furniture, etc., even if it's quite fine.

    I'm old school and I'll save stuff for my son. We'll see what he wants.
