"Last weekend myself and my long-time collaborator Josh Quinton travelled to Paris for A Shaded View on Fashion Film Festival at the Pompidou Centre. Now in its 5th year, ASVOFF brings together emerging talent, established figures and legendary names to celebrate innovative fashion, film style and beauty . Curated by the enigmatic icon Diane Pernet, Josh and I were thrilled to find out that our films Terrormisu! and The Green Carnation were both selected for screening. The festival also included fashion films from some of our London contemporaries including Fred Butler, Gabriel Gettman and Rowena True, alongside a host of international talent. To celebrate we brought along Kim Denman (stylist for The Green Carnation) and Molly Oshea (star of Terrormisu). This year the jury was headed by eccentric "carnal-artist" and personal heroine of mine, Orlan. Highlights of the opening ceremony included a performance art piece by Rosy De Palma, in which Rosy transformed her body into a living rosegarden."

Heres our favourite picks from the festival:

Beauty School Drop Out - High-camp from Charlie Le Mindu and Zoe Hitchen

EMERGING TALENT PRIZE: Awarded by NowFashion
