The fashion universe narrates itself through the film language, and NABA contributes to such a tale. Three audiovisual projects born around the Fashion Design Area have been selected for the fourteenth edition of A Shaded View On Fashion Film (ASVOFF). Running in Paris from November 10 to 13, the international festival puts the spotlight on fashion film. The documentary "Fashion Poetry" and the two videos "DON'T ASK ME WHY" and "RED SIN" will take part in the contest.

The fashion film and projects realised at the Academy

Founded by fashion journalist Diane Pernet in 2008, ASVOFF includes screenings, performances, exhibitions, talks and prizes. This year, "Fashion Poetry" by Silvia Morani (director and NABA lecturer) is part of the Official Selection. The documentary was already presented at the Rome Fashion Week in February 2022, organised by Altaroma. It shows the workshop and performance by Olivier Saillard (fashion historian and curator) with Axelle Douè (model and performer), involving the Rome campus students of the BA in Fashion Design. The project focused on the concept of the "forgotten dress in a wardrobe", giving it a new existence with a process of poetic remodelling. From the manipulation and transformation of the discarded clothes to the performance, the video captures some visionary moments of the educational experience. The screening will be on November 10 at 11:00 AM.

"DON'T ASK ME WHY" will be on the big screen the day after at the same time, but within the Official Selection Student Films. It looks at the MA in Fashion and Textile Design students' collections that are born in the A.Y. 2020/21*. Already presented at the Rome Fashion Week in July 2022, organised by Altaroma, the video focuses on how fashion creations are the natural or forced outcome of a set of conceptual, sensory, or emotional choices that, like yarn, are woven into a brand-new fabric. Nicoletta Morozzi (NABA Fashion Design Advisor) curated the selection of images, while S.C. Artroom created the video as well as the related animations and sound. To conclude, in the same section of the competition is also "RED SIN" by BA Fashion Design student Raffaele Scicchitano. The video was created as part of the Multimedia Design - Fashion Video course held by NABA lecturers Stefania Seoni and Raphael Monzini.

*From the A.Y. 2021/22, the programme evolved into two different MAs: one in Fashion Design and another one in Textile Design.
