The Trend of Short Fashion Films

  • Published in Film + Web

Distributed through Nowness, a luxury lifestyle platform, there’s one place to stop for long-form fashion films. Commonplace are these short films, either narrative or documentary, each showing off the art while selling a product or brand. (Once in a while, we even see gorgeous fashion designer-made films, like Tom Ford’s A Serious Man.)

Nowness, while a brand of LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, “remains an open platform where all content is editorially independent.” The site, rich with this video content, recently won a Webby for best fashion website.

Note: Eisner also shot the whole photo campaign as well.

You should check out the Marc Jacobs and Louis Vuitton documentary. It’s very good :)

This one? Looks promising, but — at 75 minutes — a bit different than the examples above.

yes. It is different than the ones you posted, but your post reminded me of this and thought you would enjoy watching it.
