ANATOMY OF A DRESS is a documentary that presents the passion, talents, history, struggles and triumphs of the most renowned fashion designers in Puerto Rico and how fashion has marked our lives, culture and traditions forever. It follows the history of the manual garment industry in Puerto Rico–the only means of survival for many families–and is a touching view of the exploitation in this industry. This is the basis for our fashion industry today, and the hope of a better future and a place for Puerto Rican designers in the world.
