CANCELED! Tuesday City Hall Press Preview of Fashion Film Fesival - IS CANCELED! But the Festival itself will be held Thursday October 11th!

THE PRESS EVENT THAT WAS GOING TO BE HELD AT CITY HALL TUESDAY OCTOBER 9TH HAS BEEN CANCELED! But -- the film festival described below will be held this Thursday night at Vibiana at 2nd and Main.


Los Angeles, CA – On October 9, Diane Pernet and Dino Dinco will announce the short films about fashion, style, and beauty selected for inclusion in the international presentation entitled YOU WEAR IT WELL 2 at the top of Los Angeles City Hall. Over 200 artists, filmmakers, and fashion industry professionals submitted work for consideration, who were either invited personally by YOU WEAR IT WELL or through an open call posted on Diane Pernet’s weblog that follows trends in fashion, film, and art from around the world:

Out of the 200 submissions, only 30 films passed the test by a jury comprised of Photography Curator and Documentary Film Producer Deborah Irmas, LACMA’s new Curator of Photography Charlotte Cotton, Executive Producer of HKM and Rockfight Ned Brown, Dino Dinco and Diane Pernet. Criteria for the films included a running time of 30 seconds to five minutes and a centralized theme around fashion, style, and/or beauty that expresses a unique thought which contribute to the artistry behind the fashion and film industries.

From the breezy beaches of Brazil in Osklen’s “Verao 07” to the calculated art direction of Swedish artist Erwin Olaf’s “Le Dernier Cri,” viewers are to expect an insider look into the bright minds of fashion. Londoners Gareth Pugh and Nick Knight of SHOWstudio have a “Fash Off: Make-Up-a-Thon” while les super-chic Marlon & Marlene ripple through the YOU WEAR IT WELL presentation with five smart little films. Icon Dita Von Teese is filmed by Ali Mahdavi and Helene Rossignol in their film, “Dita”, and Diane Pernet and Alexandre Czetwertynski document “Eley Kishimoto.” And, never to be forgotten, is Spaniard Antonio de la Rosa’s “LOveREAL.”

YOU WEAR IT WELL 2 will premiere on October 11 at 8:30 p.m. in the restored Vibiana cathedral on 2nd and Main Street in Downtown, as part of the BOXeight fashion/music/art event entitled “Have Faith in LA.” Immediately following the Los Angeles debut, Diane Pernet and Dino Dinco will again be traveling around the world sharing the visually expressed ideas of these international artists preoccupied with fashion in cities around the world as part of fashion weeks, museum exhibitions, film festivals, and private screenings. Stops planned include San Francisco, New York, Barcelona, Bilbao, Antwerp, Hyeres, Tokyo, Stockholm, and Sao Paolo, to name a few.
