Fashion films to introduce the collections

Fashion Preview wanted to show us the creations of local designers, this time through fashion films due to the current context. The creators also had great freedom of expression during the shootings.
Among the forms of presentations are: 
  • Animated fashion films
  • Personal interviews
  • Backstage images
  • Moments of creation in workshops, or a location that inspires the designers.
  • Videos with rhythm, to the most avant-garde ones
Fashion Preview’s team specifies that the content was shot “under very strict security standards to ensure a safe working environment for all teams.” The videos were chosen by the team which never disappoints us each year. It represents for them “an innovative and immersive solution where the exercise of physical fashion shows is no longer a necessary step to communicate with the public or medias”. According to the FP team:
“This digital edition will prove that we can move forward despite the current situation and that we must not stop, but on the contrary, we must continue to support the local fashion ecosystem, its creators and emerging talents. “

Who is as eager as we are to discover the collections and dive into the creative world of designers?
