What’s that sound you’re hearing? It’s the collective sound of camera’s clicking when fabulously attired men and women decide they are going to tear up the rule book on how to dress for the Second Annual La Jolla Fashion Film Festival. On display was everything from gauzy evening gowns to burlap dresses and white patent leather go-go boots. Celebrity Indrani’s appearance in a stunning peacock dress added frenzy to an event that has already captured the attention of fashionistas everywhere. Oh how I love seeing women wearing clothing with attitude!
From hard-edged futurists to soft romantics, Directors, Producers, photographers and bloggers from around the globe gathered to celebrate the best in cinematic genre to the fashion world. The film festival (LJFFF) was held at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego in La Jolla with a very sweet reception. Festival Director Fred Sweet was the inspiration behind the three-day event showcasing 20 short films. An exciting new distinctive category of film making, fashion film came to existence because of the internet and is exploding worldwide. Designers collaborating with well-known filmmakers and artists has become an increasingly common way for them to show off their latest collections and is revolutionizing fashion marketing right before our eyes. The most talked-about fashion film director of them all is none other than Chanel’s top designer Karl Lagerfeld. The fashion icon brings us “The Tale of a Fairy” which documents the annual Chanel Cruise, with highlights of erotica.
Having the desire to be unique, I designed my black taffeta and tulle skirt, mixed with a Balenciaga leather vest. Great style isn’t dependent on youth, rather it’s about a creative eye along with an exquisite sense of judgement. I love a woman who approaches fashion with charm, style and utter conviction. Whether it’s shoes or clothes, ever since I have been able to shop, buying things to wear has been one of my favorite pleasures. ( well that and writing the blog!) Like any art form, fashion has a life of it’s own. Oh by the way Karl, imitation is the best form of flattery… keep sporting that platinum white hair!
