New York Fashion Week, one of the most notable fashion weeks around the world, starts February 9 so… let’s talk about it.

THE FILM: Editor-in-chief of Italian Vogue, Franca Sozzani, has been continuously pushing boundaries of fashion, beauty and art for nearly 30 years. Never shy of mixing fashion and politics, Sozzani is famous for her groundbreaking and controversy-courting issues that tackle hot-button topics like diversity in fashion, plastic surgery, environmental disasters and drug abuse. Sozzani’s son, Francesco Carrozzini, explores her life, career, creative process as well as their own relationship in this touching and intimate film.

Meet in the lobby of the Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema for 6:15pm. Film begins at 6:30pm.

TICKETS: Tickets can be purchased online and at the Hot Docs Ted Rogers box office. Use the promo code HARVARDSEAL in-person or online for a reduced rate!

Please note that the promo code only applies to the February 9 screening at 6:30PM.

POST-FILM DETAILS: We are so excited to be joined by the incredible Susie Sheffman, one of Canada’s leading Fashion Directors, for our post-film discussion this month. Susie is the former Fashion Director of FASHION Magazine, and has worked with icons and celebrities like Kevyn Aucoin, Walter Chin, Ashley Olsen, Claire Danes and Taylor Swift.

Join us at the Labrynth Lounge (298 Brunswick Ave) for an incredible post-film chat with someone who has attended fashion shows with Franca herself. We will have the private room in the basement!
