The British Council is presenting an exhibition of fashion film, Dressing the Screen which will be an official fringe event of Digital Fashion Week Singapore 2013 British Exchange. Curated by filmmaker Kathryn Ferguson and designed by System Sovereign X Fuur, it will explore the origins, history and pioneering role UK filmmakers and designers have played in the development of fashion film.

Featured designers and filmmakers will include SHOWstudio’s Nick Knight and Ruth Hogben, Vivienne Westwood, Hussein Chalayan, and Henry Holland. Pivotal moments in fashion, film and technology - from pre-internet early experiments such as the early films of Ossie Clark, Zandra Rhodes and Bella Freud - to visionary technological advancements by filmmakers such as Nick Knight and Solve Sundsboro will be displayed. The exhibition will also explore the ground breaking work of female filmmakers and how they respond to shooting the female form with work by Marie Schuller, Amanda Boyle for Mulberry and Elisha Smith-Leverock.

Please note gallery is closed from 1:30pm - 2:30pm daily.
