Mon Petit Film Rouge
The lovely Vauxhall Fashion Scout were the saviours of fashion week for me; showing the up-and-comers, their decadent press lounge open until late, the Freemasons Hall venue and - on one evening - hosting a night of short fashion films under the Vision Films umbrella. A natural progression from stills which enables the viewer to see clothes as they are worn and thus as they are intended to be seen - in motion - the mini fashion film is gradually gaining more and more kudos in an industry constantly looking ahead.
Can Evgin's Mon Petit Film Rouge stood out amongst the others as a masterclass in disconcerting, uncomfortable film-making. All jarring angles, a crow-like intensity exuding from the models, their faces encased in masks, the buffeting beats throwing the clothes into flowing motion; sinister, dystopian women controlled or controlling - Can's piece illustrates the vitality of the form - which with the current focus upon it - is only set to burgeon further.
