Dressing the Screen Exhibition: The Rise of Fashion Film

Kathryn was commissioned by the British Council to curate the first major touring exhibition to look at the emerging genre of fashion film. The initial Bejing section was created in collaboration with Modern Media and brought together close to a hundred films by some of the world’s most famous and innovative fashion designers and film-makers from the last fifty years. Featured designers and filmmakers include SHOWstudio’s Nick Knight and Ruth Hogben, Alexander McQueen, Tim Walker, Rifat Ozbek, Vivienne Westwood, Ossie Clark, Hussein Chalayan, Gareth Pugh, Henry Holland and Burberry. The exhibition highlighted pivotal moments in fashion, film and technology.
