Chloë Sevigny Ditches Fashion Week for Short Film Debut

 

A portrait of the artist on the road. This was the idea behind Chloë Sevigny’s “Carmen,” the short film she directed as part of Miu Miu’s Women’s Tales series.

The short debuted Sunday night, luring the likes of Tavi Gevinson, Jeanne Damas, Kate Foley, Zosia Mamet, Chiara Ferragni and Paul Dano to The Roxy Hotel for popcorn, a viewing, and oysters and cocktails — in that order.

Shot in two days, “Carmen” follows Carmen Lynch, an up-and-coming comedian whom Sevigny discovered with the help of friends who work at Upright Citizens Brigade. “I knew that [Lynch] was not so well-known yet and just wanted to exploit her, basically,” Sevigny joked. As she finished her sentence, a woman came by to offer her a glass of water. “Oh, maybe I’ll double fist,” she exclaimed after glancing at the drink already in her hand.

The short is a delight. Lynch’s humor is irreverent and self-deprecating, and it’s clear that Sevigny has a director’s eye. Though she still loves acting, Sevigny hopes to try her hand at a few more shorts and eventually, a feature film.

“I think as I’m getting older, I’d like to have something else to do and I do find it more fulfilling, directing,” she said. “And I’m a control freak, so I like to be in control of everything.”

Sevigny hasn’t done much in terms of fashion week; she outright stated that she wanted to do “as little as possible” this time around. “I went to the amfAR event, which was not really, I don’t know,” she said. “Is that fashion? Charity? Fashion? This is my first big thing.”

Despite her lack of involvement in this round of shows, Sevigny remains a fashion — and Miu Miu — girl at heart. “I’m in love with Miu Miu and the Miu Miu girl and the fantasy that they always create,” she said. “I hope I can keep wearing it, now that I’m in my early 40s. I’m pushing it.”

Dubai Arab Fashion Week organisers give pieces a chance

Arab Fashion Week opened on Thursday with hopes of establishing Dubai as a top destination for the "ready couture" genre and as a major fashion capital.

It is the first time that a fashion week has been dedicated to the form, described by organisers as a blend of haute couture and ready-to-wear or pret-a-porter.

"In Milan, we celebrate high-end ready-to-wear. In Paris, we celebrate high-end haute couture," said Jacob Abrian, the head of the Dubai-based Arab Fashion Council (AFC).

In Dubai and the Arab world, "we want to be innovative", he said, with off-the-rack clothing that is tailored to haute couture standards and can be customised.

For the first time in the region, the five-day show will also present a unisex collection by Rad Hourani, a Canadian-Jordanian designer known for his genderless creations.

The fashion week opened with a "ready couture" collection for women from Emirati designer Lamya Abedin in the first of more than 20 Spring/Summer 2017 collections from more than 10 countries.

The collection drew applause from an audience of mostly women - some in mini-prom dresses 2016 and others covered from head to toe in the black traditional abayas and even a niqab.

The show ended with Abedin's young daughter taking to the catwalk with a model in a peach-coloured lace wedding dress.

Now in its third edition, Arab Fashion Week aims to attract fashion conscious women from the Gulf, as well as luxury-orientated buyers from Russia and China.

The event, founded in 2014 to represent the fashion industry in the 22 countries of the Arab League, introduced "ready couture" after an in-depth study of the market, Abrian said.

The form follows in the footsteps of limited ready-to-wear collections that can be customised, from famous fashion houses Roberto Cavalli and Dolce and Gabbana, he said.

AFC spokeswoman Daline Eluar said the group "aims to strengthen the role of the UAE, through Dubai, to become the fifth international fashion capital alongside New York, London, Paris and Milan".

The fashion week seeks to show the world that the Arab region is not just "war and conflicts" but also "creativity, art and beauty", she said.

The Gulf city-state is a growing tourist destination, a magnet for investors and home to one of the world's largest shopping malls.

"Dubai has become a fashion capital after international capitals" attracting tourists and designers alike, said Emirati haute couture designer Maryam al-Shaibani, who spoke to AFP after the opening show.

The cosmopolitan city-state has been spared the wave of unrest that has rocked other Arab countries since 2011.

Abrian said the AFC wanted to "tailor peace through fashion" by promoting Arab designers and attracting Western brands to manufacture in the region.

During the week, the council will promote a Jordan-based initiative to set up the Arab world's first factory able to manufacture garments to international standards, he said.

The initiative is part of a drive towards setting up a creative economy based on the region's art and culture within 10 years, he added.

But much remains to be done, Abrian said, as customers still trust Western designers over their Arab peers.

"Everything that comes from Paris, from Milan is more appreciated," he said.

The AFC hopes to counter this by promoting brands that are "made in Arabia".

Shaibani, however, appeared more optimistic.

"International designers are starting to enter the world of Arab fashion designing" by creating garments such as traditional abayas worn by women in the Gulf region, she said. "This means that we have reached the world."

Early this year, Italy's Dolce and Gabbana launched their first line of hijabs and abayas for Muslim customers in the Middle East.

Islamic fashion will be on display throughout the event with brands from Malaysia and Indonesia, at a time of growing controversy in the West over Muslim women's clothing.

"We believe that Islamic wear is very important and international brands are targeting" it, said Abrian, adding that Muslim spending on fashion may reach $500bn annually by 2019.
