A convergence of film, art and fashion
Fashion at FIAFFIAF, Florence Gould Hall (55 East 59th Street, New York, NY) Map it $20
If you’re a slave to fashion, we suggest heading to the French Institute Alliance Francaise (FIAF) this weekend for the launch of their annual Fashion at FIAF series. Ushering in the festivities is the US premiere of A Shaded View on Fashion Film Festival, a festival launched in Paris that showcases an international selection of films dedicated to fashion, style and beauty. Friday night's program, presented by fashion journalist and blogger Diane Pernet, features twelve stunning films followed by a Q&A with Mike Figgis and Jerry Schatzberg. Before the screenings on Friday, you can check out Jessica Sofia Mitrani’s Headpieces for Piece and Elana Langer’s The Pop-Up (Ethical) Sweatshop. And on Saturday, FIAF hosts a special screening of Jerry Schatzberg’s Puzzle of a Downfall Child followed by a Q&A.
