Director Wong Kar Wai has been a huge fashion inspiration to China and the rest of the world since he started making his darker romance films, such as 2046 and In The Mood for Love.  2046 would be a defining movie for me; slow moving, dark, moody, futuristic and vintage fashion at the same time, and contains all of my favorite actresses. 




I was just watching a documentary on Shanghai, and the dressmakers were stating that since his films were released that everyone is raising the mandarin collars on dresses to over a three inch stand.  It is becoming extremely uncomfortable for neck movement, but all of the women want to look like the actresses in his films.  Now that is film to fashion!

If you have not seen any of his films, please do so right now.
