My plan wants to highlight the neologism coined by the well-known designer of Dominican origin Oscar De La Renta, to indicate the fashion victims as people who, in an uncritical and passive way, follow the dictates of fashion.
Vulnerability and transience in the face of materialism leads these subjects to be considered victims, on the one hand of social prejudices and on the other of the interests of the fashion industry itself, two of the main excesses in this field.

Excess is the key that transforms a symptom into a pathology. Just as a fashion victim is considered such when she exceeds her looks, leading them to exaggeration, even a slight mental disorder can turn into an obsession when an individual alters his or her thoughts, doubts, hypotheses, fear about a particular topic. This exaggeration connects this concept to the three main disorders, from the psychiatric point of view of obsession: obsessive-compulsive disorder, dysmorphobic disorder and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.

Director Biography - Francesca Albergo

I'm Francesca Albergo, I'm 24 years old, I live in Paullo (MI), graduated from high school of human sciences and graduated in Fashion Styling and Communication in Naba (New Academy of Fine Arts) in Milan.
I am passionate about fashion and cinema, passions cultivated over the years, both thanks to the various workshops and thanks to the theater academy attended in 2016, a choice that I would undertake a million times. Theater changes you deep down, and it's true.
Later and during my academic career, I worked as an assistant stylist for 'TheGreatest' Magazine and a dressmaker for the 2018-2019 collection of Prada, Fendi and Armani.
I am in love with the world of cinema, which is why I decided to write a short film, as well as my fashion film presented to you which is called Fashion Victim.
