NOT JUST CINEMA
The enchantment that does not fade
by Clara Tosi Pamphili
There is an indissoluble link between Cinema and Fashion, I don’t say Costume because I don’t want to reiterate what has already been clear from the first human clothing and representations, widely treated in any text of Fashion and Costume History.
I mean Cinema as the construction of an event that transforms the spectator from voyeur to Voyager, from spectator to traveller into another dimension. Even the apparently simpler show that recounts a Fashion collection carries creative dynamics identical to those necessary to materialize a story, to visualize the Mood.
The Mood is the script of a fashion collection, the search for images, the historical, artistic and literary references filtered by the vision and style of the designer/director that generate a whole series of choices, very similar to the making of a film. Just think of the term casting, the choice of models who must not only physically wear the clothes but also play a role that expresses the brand’s style.
