Stretches 30 minutes of material to 79 through sheer repetition, both verbal (endlessly redundant talking heads) and visual (flashy montages replete with tangential catwalk imagery).
Even those viewers who share the film's conviction that preparing a collection for New York Fashion Week is inherently fascinating may lose interest long before the final frock is fitted.
"Dressed" is an uplifting story to be sure, but director-producer David Swajeski doesn't do it justice.
David John Swajeski, who directed, produced, and edited this documentary on the fledgling fashionista, snags his film on clichés, poor pacing, and an unwillingness or inability to push his subject beyond talk-show pop-psych babble.
There's an affecting tale of career aspiration in the middle of this somewhat limited, repetitive documentary about the fashion business.
A nobody who wants to be somebody but doesn't want the hassle of auditioning for Project Runway to achieve his media moment. (Perhaps this is his audition tape.)
As movies about the fashion world go, Dressed isn't very fabulous.
