Dear Shaded Viewers,
Juan Enrique Villarreal continues with our summer video archive project in a perpetual state of uploading…
Easy Pieces was a collaboration with Disciple Films and that collaboration existed long before ASVOFF was launched in 2008, in fact two years before my first joint venture on another fashion film festival YWIW launched in 2006.
Later we'll post Fashioned Out! which we did for two seasons: 2003, only Paris and 2004 which covered NYC, London, Milan and was put in the windows of Galleries Lafayette for 3 weeks, one of which was Paris Fashion Week. Our collaboration with Galleries Lafayette was thanks to our friend Guillaume Chaillet who connected Alex Czetwertynski, aka Disciple FIlms, and I to them which then gave birth to Fashioned Out. The title came from yours truly because by the end of fashion week/s, I couldn't help repeating myself…"I'm fashioned out!"…hence Alex gave the series that name.
