Synopsis

As Yves Saint Laurent, one of the greatest Parisian haute couture designers, draws the sketches for his final collection, his long time (business) partner Pierre Bergé manages a series of events to celebrate the fashion icon as a modern myth. Immersed inside the couture house during YSL's final two years there, documentary filmmaker Olivier Meyrou's camera films the YSL-Bergé duo. But despite the upbeat title, Celebration goes behind the curtain to give the viewer an uncut, raw, and at times tragic look of what was really going on inside the fashion house right before its Master left. The documentary was blocked for many years, but now, 11 years after it first premiered, is back for a special Fashion Cinema screening - because YSL is worth celebrating and like Stephen Todd once wrote for Vogue back in 2002: "Couture will go on. But Monsieur Yves Saint Laurent will be terribly missed."
