Fash/On Film Mentoring Scheme
|TRACES BY ABBIE STEPHENS FOR EMILIO DE LA MORENA
This season, BFC Fash/On Film sponsored by River Island, launched the Mentoring Scheme: its first nationwide search for emerging film-making talent. Abbie Stephens was selected to receive professional support and mentoring through White Lodge productions with the goal of creating a film for leading British designer Emilio de la Morena's spring/summer 2013 collection. This offered a unique opportunity to gain insight into and experience of the fashion film industry.
With many thanks to White Lodge for production, as well as Canon, Cut & Run, Studio 66 and VFX.
'TRACES' by Abbie Stephens for emilio de la morena
Created to mark the launch of Emilio's SS13 collection, Abbie Stephen's film plays light against dark to accentuate the textural details and silhouettes across the range. Drawing inspiration from the themes of memory and perception that Emilio used as the basis for his new pieces, Abbie creates and inverts worlds to play with the line between imagination and reality.
