Fashion Videos That Tell a Story

Fashion videos don’t have to be pretentious bores. First, too many take themselves way too seriously at the expense of a connection with the audience, and secondly, I don’t think I can look at another montage of models posing on a moonscape/industrial warehouse/empty room/etc…while an alien atmospheric soundtrack plays. Thankfully the Fashion Film genre is growing beyond that, and some of the most memorable films are the ones with engaging characters that tell a story without upstaging the fashion its trying to sell.

Here are two examples that tell a story.

The first video: L.A.DY DIOR by John Cameron Mitchell
(2011) Is the story of a model at her breaking point which results in a great photo shoot.

The second video is its inspiration: JUN ROPE’ CM by Richard Avedon (1973) which still looks fresh today.
