Nick Rees-Roberts is a Lecturer in French and Film Studies at the University of Bristol, UK.

The moving image has become a key marketing tool for luxury fashion, central in enabling brands to shape their visual codes and extend their brand awareness. Fashion Film is the first detailed study of the shifting shape of fashion imagery in the digital age, which investigates the role of the moving image in the promotion, communication and spectacle of contemporary fashion.

Combining interdisciplinary analysis of cinema and digital culture, the book traces the emergence of fashion film in the 21st century through its historical roots in pre-digital forms of photography, experimental cinema, television advertising and documentary film-making, right up to today's visual spread of contemporary fashion on video blogs, online magazines and live-streamed catwalk shows. Examining collaborations between brands and pioneering image-makers such as Guy Bourdin, Jean-Paul Goode, William Klein, Nick Knight, Steven Meisel and Bruce Weber, Fashion Film highlights the critical tension between the fashion film conceived as a creative endeavour and as commercial enterprise.

The book also includes a parallel focus on factual representations of fashion through the rise of documentary fashion film going behind the scenes to follow the processes and personalities involved in making fashion. Accessible and well-illustrated, Fashion Film will appeal to students and scholars studying fashion, film, media, photography, celebrity, sociology and cultural studies.
