The Australian Centre for the Moving Image to present great British fashion on film
This season will focus on British fashion makers and icons and their influence on the international stage, from Twiggy to Westwood.
MELBOURNE.- The Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) proudly presents the September edition of the Fashion on Film series; Great British Fashion on Film. As part of Melbourne Spring Fashion Week (MSFW) and Great Britain Arts 13, this season will focus on British fashion makers and icons and their influence on the international stage, from Twiggy to Westwood.

For Twiggy, it all began when she, aka Lesley Hornby, was photographed by Barry Lategan, for a hairdresser in Mayfair, London, who was experimenting with a new type of hair cut. With the images hung in the window of his salon, it was the Daily Express fashion writer that declared Twiggy ‘The Face of ‘66’. From there, a style was set; mini-skirts, short hair, large eyes, and interviews on Parkinson. Philip Priestley’s documentary Twiggy: The Face of ’66 looks at the phenomenon of Twiggy, Carnaby Street and the English fashion scene of the post WWII era.

Looking beyond Carnaby Street and the hotbed of creativity it fostered, is British Style Genius: Breaking the Rules – Fashion Rebel Look. Vivienne Westwood emerged around the same time as Twiggy – looking to create a difference within the fashion vernacular and at the same time looking to espouse a political standpoint. Her partner at the time, Malcolm McLaren, teamed with her to push the envelope of what was possible in fashion. She paved the way for expression of individualism and a new era of catwalk shows evolved. This film looks at her journey, and also how this has influenced other designers and their dialogue with the boundaries of fashion.

Rounding out the season is the 2011 documentary Paul Smith, Gentleman Designer by Stéphane Carrel. Like Westwood, Smith was not formally trained in clothing design, however, he has made a name for himself as a tailor of fine menswear with a difference, a flourish that allows a man to include whimsy and personality in his business attire; floral lining in a suit, stripes meeting each other at the cuff at 45 degrees, the showcase of socks, shoes and raised trouser hems.

All films will screen at ACMI from Saturday 31 August through to Saturday 7 September to coincide with Melbourne Spring Fashion Week. For more information, session times and tickets, visit acmi.net.au/film
