Alexander McQueen [electronic resource]: Masters of Style

As one of the brightest stars on the British fashion scene, the late Alexander McQueen pushed the limits of what's possible while sparking a good deal of controversy along the way. During the early years, his provocative shows were confrontational enough to qualify as performance art, but underneath the showmanship McQueen was a master technician with an imagination that catapulted his career from the raw edginess of London to the aristocratic atelier of Hubert de Givenchy in Paris. Filmed in 2003, this program traces McQueen's career as it was rising to ever-greater heights.

Dolce & Gabbana [electronic resource]

Sex and celebrity, sacrilege and excess, trash, flash, and glamour drizzled with drama, scandal, and contradiction. It has all worked wonders for Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, and the celebration of all things wild and wonderful has not only made them multimillionaires - it has also turned them into fashion figureheads for 21st-century Italy. This program introduces viewers to the irreverent and irresistible Dolce & Gabbana.

Jean Paul Gaultier [electronic resource]

Jean Paul Gaultier is the quintessential bad boy of French fashion and one of the industry's most flamboyant characters. His Gallic charm and tongue-in-cheek witticisms are reflected in collections that are as full of fantasy as they are of classical poise. This program profiles the fashion designer who put men in skirts and introduced lingerie as a fashion statement - a darling of the celebrity firmament with Madonna and Björk as two of his faithful followers. Yet in spite of all his outrageousness, Gaultier is a consummate French original who delights in mixing classic design with the avant-garde.

John Galliano [electronic resource]

Madness, delirium, and decadence - these are words that have attached themselves to John Galliano, whose sensibilities combine a reverence for the past that springs naturally from his Spanish roots and a sense of theater sharpened by his English upbringing. This program profiles the controversial fashionista, who has made a career of fashion "moments" ranging from a London graduation show in 1984 to couture work in Paris for Christian Dior. Over and over again, Galliano has proved how much more there is to fashion than mere clothes.

Michael Kors [electronic resource]

This program introduces viewers to an icon of American style who has steadfastly charted his own course, refusing to be swayed by fads.

Valentino [electronic resource]

We are used to the idea of the celebrity designer-thanks, largely, to Valentino Garavani, who is arguably the prototype. A ruler in the world of fashion for decades, he became entirely identified with the lifestyle of his rich and famous clientele to the point where the women he dressed-Jackie O and Elizabeth Taylor, to name only two-became known as "Val's Gals." This program offers a retrospective of the life and career of the ineffably chic fashion designer known simply as Valentino.

Monsters From the Id [electronic resource]: Anxiety and Optimism in 1950s Science Fiction

It was the era of McCarthyism, the Korean War, and nightmares of nuclear oblivion-but, as this documentary illustrates, the 1950s also witnessed a surge of optimism and confidence in America that figured prominently in the period's science fiction cinema. Interweaving clips from over thirty classic movies, the film describes the emergence of a distinctly 20th-century archetype, the Modern Scientist, which emboldened an uncertain nation to face new challenges head-on. Chief among these was the 1957 launch of Sputnik, a principal catalyst in the international space race and a paradigm shift in the way Americans imagined space travel. Commentary on the decade's scientific and sociological transformation-and on America's shortcomings in science and technology today-comes from Homer Hicka [...]
