“I have been a follower of the princely family of Monaco since I was a child in the 1980s,” Beahan said. “The mystique of Princess Stephanie and the jaw-dropping glamor of Princess Grace Kelly are tattooed in my creative mind. Their heir apparent, Pauline Ducruet of Monaco, is the perfect blend of the two. She is the real deal in her endeavors creative with her Alter fashion line and her commitment to sustainability. Myself and our team at Calabasas Films began this journey in early 2020 and were finally able to begin filming Pauline on her meaningful adventures nearly 2 years later. “Forming” showcases the invaluable role and responsibility of a famous young woman who comes forward to champion the future of fashion.”
Climan added: “Pauline is the model of a ‘royal work’. She is an accomplished creator and entrepreneur. Pauline’s commitment to improving life on our planet for all is reflected in the next generation consumers who are at the heart of the Alter community who share Pauline’s passion and determination. Engaged engagement is the future of fashion! We couldn’t be more proud to help spread the story of Pauline and her line of Alter fashion to a global audience.
