Combining the best in contemporary fashion films with a selection of documentaries and cult films, the festival offers a variety of perspectives on the fashion industry, addressing issues such as diversity and sustainability in the fashion system, the role of clothing pieces in a museum collection, cultural appropriation or the status of the designer and model through the decades.
