Vicki Vasilopoulos Profile

Filmmaker Vicki Vasilopoulos discusses her documentary, Men of the Cloth, which follows three Italian master tailors in the U.S. and Italy. Christine and Vicki also chat about her newest project, The Little Dress: A Journey of Hope, which Vicki is currently filming. It tells the story of Lillian Weber, a 100-year-old woman who has sewn more than 1,000 dresses for girls in Malawi through the nonprofit Little Dresses for Africa. Lillian still sews a dress every day.
