Who are the rulers of the fashion world? Who drives its dream machine? The designers and models, the media, and the garments themselves, of course. But what if we look beyond them for once, and focus on the front row of the fashion shows? Fashion Babylon is a documentary about this particular tribe of celebrities, inhabitants of an environment in constant flux. They are the pilots of a juggernaut that sometimes chews them up and spits them out. Today, their spaceship is running out of fuel, and they must do some soul-searching.
