Film has the power to take us through time. We can see the past, the present, and even imagine the future through this medium. But the element of fashion is what further deepens our experience into these instances in time. This week you'll get a chance to explore how fashion and film fuse together through Wearing Time: Returns, Recalls, Renewals, a weekend-long and free film-filled event.
The four-day festival is taking place at the Fashion Project at the Bal Harbour Shops from Thursday, January 28th through Sunday, January 31st. This cultural space on the third level of the mall will be transformed into a screening room by Miami-based Tui Pranich and Tui Lifestyle. While you're lounging in five star living furniture and decor, you'll enjoy celebrated classics, rare newsreels, animations, documentaries, fashion films and artist films. Some highlights include Alfred Hitchcock's classic Vertigo and a documentary titled My Fancy Heels, which looks into the makings of trends before it becomes fashion.
Along with this, there will be special introductions and talks before some of the movies, one which includes a conversation with co-curators of the festival, Tom Gunning and Marketa Uhlirova. The screenings are complimentary but space is limited. Make sure to RSVP here or call (786) 245-2200. For the full lineup of films head to this page.
