If that wasn’t enough, Dunham has also stealthily turned her hand to producing. In a new collaboration with Jenni Konner, the actor and writer has unveiled a new, fashion-focused documentary film – titled Suited – which followsthe sartorial struggles of transgender men.
The HBO film, which will premiere next month, centres on the clientele of tailoring company Bindle & Keep. “For a lot of people with all kinds of bodies and identities, clothes can make or break every day of their life,” one tailor explains in the trailer. “No one contacts us and says, ‘I want a fitting’. They usually say, ‘This is my story.’”
The film was directed by Jason Benjamin, and got its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January. It will air on HBO on June 20.
