Fashion at FIAF 2014

Featured in Women's Wear Daily

Fashion at FIAF, the French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF)'s annual program celebrating fashion, returns this spring to salute style innovators past and present.

FIAF is thrilled to welcome fashion icon Diane Pernet for the U.S. Premiere of A Shaded View on Fashion Film (ASVOFF), the first international festival of films dedicated to fashion, style, and beauty, presented in partnership with Kering on Friday, March 14. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with directors Mike Figgis (Leaving Las Vegas), and Jerry Schatzberg (Scarecrow). Prior to the event, guests can view Headpieces for Peace, award-winning multimedia artist Jessica Sofia Mitrani’s wry examination of fashion, politics, and feminism, on view in the FIAF Gallery from February 27 through March 22, and articulate their worldview at Elana Langer’s Pop-Up [Ethical] Sweatshop.

On Saturday, March 15, FIAF will present a tribute to legendary director and fashion photographer Jerry Schatzberg, with a Special Screening of Puzzle of a Downfall Child, his Golden Globe-nominated debut feature starring Faye Dunaway.

FIAF’s signature Fashion Talks series returns this year with two of the most innovative designers working in fashion today: Joseph Altuzarra, joined by Vogue’s Mark Holgate and Pamela Golbin, Chief Curator of Fashion and Textiles at Les Arts Décoratifs in Paris on March 19, and Thom Browne on March 31.

Additionally, influential fashion blogger Garance Doré joins FIAF on March 20 for Style Stories with her partner and fellow blogger Scott Schuman, of The Sartorialist.

Plus, on Saturday, March 8, FIAF presents a special fashion-themed edition of its popular Family Saturdays. Kids are invited to create beautiful paper costumes at a special Fashion Workshop with Franco-American artist Sydney Albertini. Afterwards, they can dance the afternoon away at a chic Fashion Ball in FIAF’s Le Skyroom.

Fashion at FIAF 2014 is guest curated by Christine de Lassus.
