Private Project

Autour du Bal

Commissioned on the occasion of the SCAD exhibition Fête de la Mode in the caves of Lacoste, France, this cinematic revelry captures the splendor of couture garments designed by SCAD fashion students and alumni.

Lush, rolling woodlands. Mountainous vistas. An ancient village château. Across the fabled Provençal landscape, follow the fateful encounters of a mystical retinue of new bohemians — a coterie of dreamers, opulent in technicolor adornment; chic marionettes brought to stunning life.

Rollicking carefree by day in this picturesque mise-en-scène, lit by fire and moon at a nightfall soirée, the young merrymakers dance and delight, shrouded in mystery, free. What magic awaits them, beyond the ball?
