Storyline

THE COLLECTION is a gripping entrepreneurial fable set in France just after the Second World War. An ambitious designer is tasked to restore Paris' supremacy as the haute couture capital. His fresh vision will usher in a new romantic era lifting the post-war gloom and paving the way for optimism and romance. But can this business, spearheaded by two clashing brothers survive meteoric success? Dark secrets threaten to topple this empire at any moment; internal rivalries and betrayals, hateful bargains made to survive the Nazi occupation, and the twisted secret behind the master's success. The staff of the atelier survived one devastating war, but another looms, where personal battles and passionate love stories set family against family and the past against the future. Written by Amazon Studios

I like to see more
19 September 2016 | by See all my reviews

I'm not an expert or have has an idea about the fashion history at that era, but has to say that this series attracted me from first episode and I'm eager to see more.

There are some matters that I didn't get to understand esp. About the family history and their relation to the world war but I guess it'll show in the coming episodes...

I don't find any likeness between this series and downton Abby ..it doesn't have same spirit or environment..we don't see servants, lavish life for the family that story talking about..

I'm excited to see what the wasted brother will come to in fashion and design ..

Love it...keep on
