Last month, MA Fashion Photography graduate Josh Brandao claimed first place at the The Fashion Film Festival Chicago (FFFC).

The FFFC is an annual festival and competition which aims to celebrate the beauty and art of fashion as captured through the filmmakers’ lens. Josh was announced as one of the FFFC winners for his film Blackened Wings from a healthy array of submissions that reflect the bold cross-section encompassed by this expanding art. Inspired by the greek legend of the Phoenix and by Russian Constructivism/Propaganda Posters, Blackened Wings tells the tale of a young boy fighting to overcome bullying and oppression.

Josh explains his inspiration in more detail below;

“Set in a place in Soviet/Military world, Blackened Wings tells the tale of a young boy fighting to overcome bullying and oppression. The film showcases a collection of accessories and fashion artefacts by London College Of Fashion Graduate Chiara Pavan, as well as pieces by Givenchy, Vivienne Westwood, Armani, amongst others.”

Josh’s winning video will be screened during fall fashion week and on FFFC media sources.
