Challenging the status quo.

Words by

James Di Fabrizio

In collaboration with Melbourne Spring Fashion Week, ACMI is celebrating the enfant terribles of the fashion world who challenge the status quo and question the way clothing is made.

The selection will showcase five films, all focusing on different elements of fashion and design. #Couture, The New Queens of Haute, Jean Paul Gaultier at Work, Fresh Dressed, Fashion House Marga Weimans and the acclaimed Traceable act as the primary features, with screenings accompanied by mini-documentaries and short films. 

Mavericks on Film runs from Friday August 28 - Sunday September 13.
