Political Fashion - CUT by Liberty Ross

Fashion is a world of fantasy brought to life. Can the world of fashion be political and the political be fashion? Well, of course, if properly executed.

CUT, a short film with not so subtle commentary on the diamond industry, successfully takes political fashion to another level. In the film, model Liberty Ross sits reclined and alone in black lingerie, dramatic hair and makeup with
her crossed legs draped in thigh high stockings.

Her outfit, accessorized with fur and diamonds, becomes a symbol of what goes on before you wear it. At first, one may mistake the scene for an ad for a high end fashion brand. However, as an eerie sound increases her diamonds begin to weep blood.

A pretty well done concept and the sound design just adds to the element.
