Seeking movies to help me think about clothes.

I want to learn about the cultural significance of clothing, as well as how clothes are made, but I want my process to be fun. What do you think are the best popular Hollywood-style movies, in which the characters discuss what clothes mean to them? What about movies in which the characters are involved with the sewing or designing of clothing? Do garments play a major part in the plot of any movies? Any suggestions for movies that have helped you to think about clothes would be most appreciated.

Looking for failed fashion designers who found later success in interior/textile design

I am looking for examples of fashion designers/artists who found a second career (if at least temporarily) as textile designers. They do not have to have been successful for very long as textile designers. My focus is on textiles created after 1990. I have so far identified Todd Oldham (who recently designed furniture for La-Z-Boy), and Rifat Ozbek with his new line of pillows. It is especially interesting if these designers continue to work within their same aesthetic. It would also be interesting to hear about other examples of designers who found success in textile design after moving away from an earlier career focus. Thanks for your help.

Help me be funny and sound smart at a Project Runway viewing party

Project Runway is starting tonight (holla!) and I'm going to a viewing party at a friend's house. What are some pithy, funny, sarcastic comments I can make when an atrocious design decision is made? And what are some general comments I can make that make me sound like I know something about fashion design?

Old-fashioned eyeglass frames

I have been looking for years for a pair of eyeglass frames like the ones Harry Caray used to wear, or the type Larry David's TV father wears. You know, the thick black boxy "television sets" that seem to be worn by older types in the entertainment business. I've come up empty handed, even after asking several eyeframe dealers. I suppose I could just fly down to Boca Raton and ask a wearer in person, but does anyone have a a name or manufacturer or style for these type of classes?
