Here’s an insider’s glimpse of the energy that enveloped the Tory Burch Fall 2013 show in Tabitha Denholm’s ethereal short.
In addition to the designer herself, models Cara Delevingne and Julia Nobis, stylist Tabitha Simmons, hair stylist Eugene Souleiman and makeup artist Diane Kendal are the protagonists captured in the unveiling of the label’s Gustav Klimt-inspired collection at New York’s Pierre Hotel. Jewel-tone colors, romantic prints and rich embellishment added to the luxe extravaganza, soundtracked here by wistful Canadian duo Blue Hawaii.
“I first came across Tabitha’s work on the website Nowness. She had directed great videos for the band Florence + the Machine, there was something about her style that immediately caught my attention. As soon as we met, we hit it off.
I loved her energy, her sense of humor(very English) and the way it was all mixed with a delicate and poetic take on everything. We first worked together a few years ago on a film about our shared love of New York City.
Last February, we collaborated again, she wanted to film the making of our show and witness the intense last days of the preparation. She was essentially a fly-on-the-wall, following us everywhere, showing the effervescence of the team making sure the clothes, the hair, the make up and the music were perfect, all captured in under 12 minutes!
I want to thank her for creating such a beautiful and evocative film. She really captured the atmosphere of the sleepless hours, team effort and creative days. I hope you will enjoy it as much as we did.” — Tory Burch
