Fashion shows don’t just happen during Fashion Week. On Netflix, they’re year-round. Get it? Fashion shows. Also fashion films. Among the seemingly endless viewing options on the streaming service, there are plenty of movies and series that put fashion and style front and center. And they come in just about every genre, from reality shows to prestige dramas. These are just some of our faves available to stream on Netflix right now.

Wonder Boy
French designer Olivier Rousteing became the creative director of Balmain when he was just 25 years old. That in and of itself is a feat worthy of a documentary of its own—the story of a fashion prodigy. But Wonder Boy is about more than just Rousteing’s gargantuan talent. Director Anissa Bonnefont is as interested in the designer’s process of creating Balmain’s latest collection as she in in his ongoing search for his birth parents. It’s an emotional journey, with lots of style and a few celebrity cameos (Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez) along the way.

Halston
From one of today’s most celebrated young designers to one of the 20th Century’s most legendary: Halston. Executive producer Ryan Murphy brings a flair for glitz and scandal to this five-part limited series starring Ewan McGregor as the influential American designer. We see Halston’s rise to the top of the 1970s fashion world, his battles with addiction and his struggle to retain control of the empire he built. Sure, it’s all a bit soapy and seedy, but the glamor of the disco era shines through. After all, who wouldn’t want to tag along with Halston and Liza Minnelli (Krysta Rodriguez) and co. as they partied at Studio 54?

The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story
We’re still in the Murphy-verse with this 2018 installment of the uber-producer’s American Crime Story anthology series. Based on journalist Maureen Orth’s 1999 book Vulgar Favors, The Assassination of Gianni Versace explores the series of tragic events that lead to the designer’s 1997 murder. Versace’s killer Andrew Cunanan (Darren Criss) is the Emmy-winning show’s primary focus, following him on a murderous spree that led him right to the fashion icon’s Miami doorstep. But we also get a very unauthorized look into the House of Versace, including the lives of Donatella Versace (Penelope Cruz) and Gianni’s lover Antonio D’Amico (Ricky Martin) leading up to and in the aftermath of his death.

Emily in Paris
If you’ve been keeping up with all the And Just Like That set photos and wondering, Where, oh where, is Patricia Field? Well, here she is. In Paris. With Emily. The famed Sex and the City stylist is responsible for the colorfully campy looks on this…polarizing series from executive producer Darren Star (SATC, Younger). The show follows 20-something American social media strategist Emily (Lily Collins) as she tries to drag the French out of their nicotine-stained ennui into the brave new Silicone century. Or something. Think of it as The Devil Wears Whatever Carrie Bradshaw Did That Time Baryshnikov Took Her to Paris.

The Remix
Hip-hop and fashion go hand-in-hand, but that is largely thanks to the work of people like famed stylist Misa Hylton and designer April Walker. This documentary follows these two pioneers, giving them the spotlight they don’t often get, while also tracing the history of Black fashion and the impact that hip-hop style has had on global culture.

7 Days Out
Each episode of this 2018 docuseries chronicles the week leading up to a major event: the Kentucky Derby, the reopening of Eleven Madison Park, the Westminster Dog Show, the culmination of NASA’s Cassini Mission to Saturn. All of which sounds very exciting, but fashionistas will be especially interested in the show’s fifth episode, which documents the seven days before Chanel’s spring-summer 2018 Haute Couture show. Cameras follow creative director Karl Lagerfeld and his team as they race against the clock to ready the looks, while set designers construct the lavish, garden-inspired set in Paris’s Grand Palais. It’s a fascinating look at what goes into creating one of the fashion world’s greatest spectacles.

Styling Hollywood
This one’s a little more Housewives than Haute Couture, but celebrity stylist Jason Bolden and interior designer Adair Curtis are so delightful it’s easy to forgive the reality TV trappings. The pair are partners in both life and their business, JSN Studio, where they work with the likes of Taraji P. Henson, Serena Williams, Janet Mock and Ava Duvernay, just to name a few. And, yes, all of those ladies show up to lend a little Black girl magic to this fabulously bingeable series.
