The fifth instalment of the successful Fashion in Film Festival, this year entitled Frame by Frame: Dissecting the Fashion Moving Image Now is currently being held at across three of London’s leading arts venues- Central St. Martins, Somerset House and Hackney Picture House. Running from 17 - 24 March, the festival brings together some of the fashion industry’s most acclaimed practitioners, from image-makers and journalists, to fashion historians and curators. An exciting series of conversations and screenings sheds light on the role and rise of the moving image in the fashion industry, and explores in detail the ways in which the industry is embracing and adapting to them.
SHOWstudio’s own Lou Stoppard will be sharing her thoughts on this important topic during a panel talk on The Shifting Landscape of Today’s Fashion Media, today, 20 March at 18:30 GMT.
