Video Sneak Peeks from Sundance's The Day Before, Featuring Donatella Versace, Alexander Wang, and Diane von Furstenberg

>> The second season of The Day Before, Loic Prigent's documentary series which follows six designers — Diane von Furstenberg, Donatella Versace, Alexander Wang, Narciso Rodriguez, Nina Ricci's Peter Copping, and Jeremy Scott — in the 36 hours leading up to their Fall 2010 show, premieres tomorrow night, Sept. 8, on the Sundance Channel at 10 pm EST with von Furstenberg, with one episode airing each night after that through Sept. 13.

Prigent is known for receiving unprecedented access into designers' inner sanctums — he captures von Furstenberg practicing yoga as she fits models, Wang in the midst of a "chiffon crisis," Narciso Rodriguez leaving his studio in a panic two hours before his show with two key looks unfinished, and Copping staging his first ever show for Nina Ricci. Clips from the episodes, below.

Alexander Wang's fashion is "a strange kind of beauty, a weird, obscure aesthetic."
