On May 18 2017, The Commissioners welcomes SHOWstudio to Picturehouse Central for a live panel and screenings that will focus on SHOWstudio’s finest fashion films. Head of Fashion Film Raquel Couceiro, Nick Knight's First Assistant Brit Lloyd, and Junior Editor Georgina Evans will sit on The Commissioners’ panel for insights on the production powerhouse that is SHOWstudio and its role as a pioneer of the fashion film medium.
The event will focus on understanding the position of film within the fashion industry, how fashion film has evolved and will continue to grow, and the relevance of narrative within this medium. Specifically, the panel will address SHOWstudio’s approach to emotionally charged video content, ranging from relationship and loss to fashion’s complicated connection with overt femininity.
The films screened have been selected by SHOWstudio and will address the political role of fashion, its relationship with leading public figures within the creative industries and how film is often part of larger projects which include essays, still photography and music playlists.
Commenting on the next session of The Commissioners, founder Niccolò Montanari stated: “I’m very flattered and pleased to be welcoming SHOWstudio and its team for the next session of The Commissioners. This is a great opportunity for filmmakers, photographers and designers to learn from the pioneers of fashion film and connect with them directly”.
The Commissioners is hosted in collaboration with shots, Votd, Arts Thread, Votd and Fashion Cinematic.
