Fashion Project’s latest series, “50 + 50: A Century of Fashion,” comes to a celebratory close this week with a four-day film festival that kicks off on January 28. The festival, “Wearing Time: Returns, Recalls, Renewals” takes place at Bal Harbour Shops’ third-floor cultural space, and explores the intersection of film and fashion and how they relate to time.

Fashion Project commissioned Fashion In Film—an exhibition, research and education project based at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, University of the Arts London—to curate the ambitions four-day film festival. It is a leading international project exploring the common ground shared by fashion and film.

Fashion in Film co-founder Marketa Uhlirova, and Tim Gunning of the University of Chicago’s Department of Film and Media Studies, worked together to curate the series of films and talks taking place this week.

“Fashion in film has always been an important sign-posting device, deployed in multiple ways to guide the viewer through time,” explains the co-curators. “Dress is one of the most potent indicators of the past, both in film and in life.”

A schedule of the festival’s events can be found below. All events will take place at the Fashion Project cultural space, which has been transformed into a screening room by Miami-based Tui Pranich and Tui Lifestyle.
