Fordlândia was built in the wilderness of the Amazon by American industrialist Henry Ford in the late 1920’s to secure a supply of rubber for his car empire.

Ford set out to create his ideal American plantation complete with rows of houses, straight roads, schools and hospitals for his workers. A strict nine to five work schedule, uniforms and leisure activities such as regular square dances were enforced on the indigenous workers. However, these attempts to organise and tame the rainforest soon began to show cracks. As early as 1930, his labourers staged the first of many revolts against the strict behavioural controls imposed. Ford’s attempts to outwit the rubber tree’s natural predators also did not go as well as planned. Ultimately, Fordlândia was sold back to the Brazilian government in 1945 and left to decay.

Inspired by the tropical ghost town, this project by Studio Swine imagines a world where Fordlandia is a success, where nature and industry have entered a symbiotic relationship to create sustainably and beautifully.
The project will feature a collection of furniture and products which use natural rubber and other materials from the forest and reference the Brazilian tropical modernist movement.

Studio Swine have also collaborated with LCF MA Menswear alumni Emma Fenton Villar and BA Textile student Erica Weide in creating three denim workwear jackets and a denim wall-hanging and a textile screen respectively.

An especially commissioned film that charts Studio Swine’s research process – from visiting Ebonite factories to the abandoned town in the Brazilian rainforest itself – will be shown in the space. Together the pieces will create an imagined domestic environment in the gallery.

London College of Fashion: Decoding Fashion Film at BAFTA Qualifying Aesthetica Short Film Festival, 3-6 November, York

  • 4 November 2016 From 3:30pm

The BAFTA Qualifying Aesthetica Short Film Festival has teamed up with London College of Fashion, UAL to explore the symbiotic relationship between fashion and film at the sixth edition of the festival, running 3-6 November in 18 venues across York.
Today, the talents of filmmakers are in demand more than ever to help brands define their identity in a fast-moving global marketplace, which is being constantly redefined by the emergence of social media platforms and increased audience interaction.
Rather than a commercial brief being a brake on creativity, this is an area of film where visual imagination truly takes flight, and ASFF presents a programme of screenings and masterclasses to delve deeper and encourage a place for discussion on the importance of fashion film in wider visual culture.
London College of Fashion, UAL’s Showcase Screening Decoding Fashion Film (Friday 4 November, 15:30 – 17:30, City Screen Picturehouse) is an opportunity for audiences to discover innovative works by the next generation of leading practitioners. It includes a panel discussion led by Nilgin Yusuf, Creative Director of the School of Media and Communication, London College of Fashion, who will explore what we mean by “fashion film.”
This relatively new sub-genre has energised the online and retail space, and spawned festivals, directors and production companies. But what is the form and function of fashion film? Filmmakers and staff from the London College of Fashion will discuss the various definitions and attributes of this hybrid genre. They will delve into topical issues including the challenge of genre conventions and on the genre’s relationship to art.
