Fashion Film: Put Out the Lights and Call the Law

by Jez Tozer on 18 February 2014

Jez Tozer's film celebrates Omer Asim's A/W 14 collection, nodding to the swing era’s buoyant, defiant reaction to the economic disaster of the Great Depression. A woman goes through a private moment of release while remembering childhood trips to New York and Harlem parties where she saw Frankie Manning and first heard the phrase 'Put out the lights and call the law'.
