Melissa Coker’s Filmic Fashion

imageIn this digital age, lookbooks are largely archaic — now it’s all about the short-film lookbook. It’s now often customary for hip designers to assemble their celebrity pals for a fashion-cum-performance art piece. Wren designer Melissa Coker is carrying the torch this season. She has her pals model Karen Elson, Sarah Sophie Flicker (of the Citizen’s Band), and Julia Restoin-Roitfeld (daughter of French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld) showing off her Spring 2009 collection. Coker and her filmmaker pal Alia Raza combined dialogue from Robert Altman’s 3 Women and Woody Allen’s Another Woman to create a short called “Another 3 Woman.” Raza explains, “It’s less about the literalness of what is occurring on screen and more about what remains in our minds and influences us after we’ve seen a film or a work of art.”
