Way back in 2005 – Adventure of Pleasure was the film that launched my very first fashion film festival

Dear Shaded Viewers,

I ws going through video links to send to a friend and I came across Adventure of Pleasure made in 2005. It was commissioned by Eley Kishimoto to launch his first menswear collection. A road movie of the Gumball 3000. This was the film that was the initial impulse for my first co-curated fashion film festival in 2006 in LA.

The second film was the big budget onethat incorporates some of my footage and also took the title of my film…but, hey it was a lot of fun and everytimeI sit on my Vitra chair I think, thank you Mark Eley and the Gumball…

Thought you might enjoy it.
