About the Fashion Film Industry

The fashion film industry is in its infancy. Currently most fashion film companies include a large variety of film types ranging from low-budget fashion show films to higher end productions.

Since the LJFFF started 5 years ago many fashion film festivals have popped up around the world including: Berlin, Dublin, Miami, Madrid, San Francisco, New York, Paris, Brazil, Warsaw, Austria, Cape Town, and Rome.

Because virtually all fashion brands accompany their new collections with a fashion film, advertisers and luxury brands have tapped into this market. The budgets for the big brands such as Cartier, Louis Vuitton, and others can run well into the millions. The most expensive fashion film ever made reportedly cost 48 million dollars and starred Nicole Kidman and was directed by Baz Lurhmann. It was for Chanel No. 5, naturally. ( Fashion film premieres are now regularly reported in WWD’s Morning Report ( throughout the world fashion media.
