Fashion Film Event
The “Theatre De La Mode” production concentrated on the early 90’s style with sartorial references to Run DMC and MC Hammer. Their video explored loose jumpsuits, buttoned up shirts and enough faded red and blue to take you back in time. All this shown off by the models pulling a variety of different shapes and poses with African inspired prints popping up on the screen. The label, which experiments with prints, transferred them from the garments onto the screen, which was an unusual and interesting transition.
The screening ended with a second presentation from Kate Davies and Lauren Mccalmont featuring their Spring/Summer 2010 collection - a complete contrast to their previous one… You know all black… well now it’s all…white. Similar loose fitting designs, the same fetish headwear but all in crystal white. This created a fitting ending to the 20 minute feature which showed fashion in a more conceptual, artistic, and romanticized way.
