The history of «Phantom Thread» unfolds in the post-war London of the 1950s. Around the famous couturier Reynolds Woodcock and his sister Cyril centered the British fashion industry. They dress all: members of the royal family, movie stars, heirs of influential families, the whole world of society, both old and young — all use the services of the House of Woodcock, a pledge of excellent style. Women endlessly flow through the life of Woodcock, a source of inspiration and communication for a committed bachelor... until he meets the young, full of will and spirit girl Alma, who soon becomes fixed in his life as a muse and mistress.
Feelings for the girl bring the modeler happiness, which is soon overshadowed by the realization that love for her has derailed all his full self-control life, which he so carefully planned before.
