Thurs 5th March: Birds Eye View
Kathryn Ferguson has put together another stellar film screening as the fashion event of "Birds Eye View" festival. Last year the show reel was followed by a talk with Penny Martin and Toyin which was a great insight to the realm of all female film making. The video which I made for LFW to showcase my A/W09 collection has been added to the itinerary and fits very neatly into this parameter as the majority of the team were coincidentally female...........Director,, stylist, hair team, makeup team, choreographer, cast............
A few of the team also worked on the latest film by Hannah Marshall which will also be showing next Thursday. Here are some screen grabs for the film by Monica Elkelv and Darren Smith. In contrast to Hannah's trademark black palette, here are some multicolour shots from my film by director Elisha Smith-Leverock. At the first New Gen seminar I attended Hannah and I sat next to each other in perfect harmony looking like the exact personification of ying and yang. I was wearing all white with my long blond hair and Hannah dressed head to toe black with her long hair. Perhaps we should consider exploiting this spontaneous synchronicity to full affect for future photo opportunities! It must have looked quite weird, like we were characters that had just stepped off a chess board.
(Hannah is showcasing her new collection in Paris from today until the 11th in a shared showroom with Marios Schwab, Peter Pilotto, Husam El Odeh and Josh Goot. "Rainbow Wave" is at 13 Rue De Sevigne, 75004)
