    Don't let the generic title fool you: David John Swajeski's documentary tells a story you're unlikely to forget.

    An uplifting story to be sure, but director-producer David Swajeski doesn't do it justice.

    Big on emotional highs but skimpy on details, Dressed rallies behind the orphan but fails to reveal the artist.

    Tracks the race-to-the-deadline scramble of a personable young designer preparing an underfunded fashion show, but offers few threads that were not already more solidly and stylishly woven into "Unzipped," "Seamless" or "11 Hours."

    Even those viewers who share the film's conviction that preparing a collection for New York Fashion Week is inherently fascinating may lose interest long before the final frock is fitted.

    David John Swajeski, who directed, produced, and edited this documentary on the fledgling fashionista, snags his film on clich├ęs, poor pacing, and an unwillingness or inability to push his subject beyond talk-show pop-psych babble when the topic is interior life and wounds.
