Tribeca Enterprises, DailyCandy's 'Fashion in Film' to Include Designer Catherine Martin, Iris Apfel
Costume designer Catherine Martin, fashion icon Iris Apfel and documentarian Albert Maysles will take part in “Fashion in Film,” which Tribeca Enterprises and the women’s lifestyle website DailyCandy will present in Manhattan on Sept. 19 and 20.
The program for the multi-platform event, which will be free and open to the public, was announced Tuesday. It also includes new short films from filmmakers Christina Voros and Matt Lenski, commissioned by DailyCandy and produced by Tribeca Digital Studios.
Martin’s costume designs from The Great Gatsby will be on display at Tribeca Cinemas in New York City, where all events will be take place, and a retrospective of her films including Gatsby, Australia, and Moulin Rouge! also will screen.
As part of DailyCandy’s recent redesign, the two original shot films and the panels will be available to view on DailyCandy’s online and mobile platforms.
“By showcasing fresh talent in fashion and rising stars in film, we are creating original content with our partners at Tribeca, while giving our audiences fun new paths into fashion through curated film and digital video -- all accessible via all DailyCandy platforms: Web, mobile, social, email,” Alison Moore, DailyCandy GM, said.
Voros, who premiered two new films this year – Kink at the Sundance Film Festival and The Director at the Tribeca Film Festival – is shooting a documentary featuring fashion blogger and photographer Tommy Ton of the blog “Jak & Jil.” Lenski, known for his short film Meaning of Robots, is directing the narrative film, Ivy Holland, featuring Alex Butler.
The panel discussions will include Martin in a conversation with Parson’s Dean of Fashion Simon Collins, and a conversation between Apfel and Maysles, who is making a documentary on Apfel.
The programming will also include a series of films relating to fashion and the event’s panelists.
