The International Festival of Films on Art (FIFA) and the McCord Museum have organized a full program of documentaries on fashion, photography and artistic expression. There will be a screening with guests the last Thursday of each month. Mark it on your calendar!
For a year, Augoyard and Kovess-Brun followed Kevin, Ester, Gabriel and Olivier, four students in the fashion section of La Cambre in Brussels, one of the world’s most prestigious visual arts schools, as they developed their collections for their fifth and final year in the program. The filmmakers wanted to provide a thought-provoking take on the sincere motivations of these young people fascinated by the world of fashion.Through the students’ own accounts and insights from fashion professionals such as Hervé Yvrenogeau, Laurent Edmond, Dinie Van den Heuvel and Sandrina Fasoli, Bouquet Final explores the creative process, doubts and dreams of the four aspiring designers. Do they have what it takes, and are they thick-skinned enough, to make it? Will their artistic ambitions be strong enough to withstand the demands of the industry?Beyond the basic issue of artistic creation, fashion—the film’s central character—is revealed to be a perilous endeavour in which doubts, demands and toil become entangled against a backdrop of creative brilliance. More than a conventional documentary on youth, more than a fashion showcase, Bouquet Final takes an in-depth look at an entire fashion generation from a social standpoint.
