2012 Documentary Antifashion, explores the fashion revolution that occurred during the global socio – economic instability of the late 80’s and early 90s, a rejection of the trend-driven, hyper-glamorous and sometimes pompous style, that had defined the industry throughout the previous decade.

Triggered by the early 80s emergence of the now legendary Japanese designers, Rei Kawukubo and Yohji Yamomoto, who rebelled against corporate industry rules, with their radical approach, focusing on disproportion and deconstruction. This paved the way for a wave of free-thinking young designers in the 1990s, like the Antwerp Six, Alexander Mcqueen, Helmut Lang, and Jil Sander, whose combined talent has comprehensively shaped the landscape of contemporary fashion.
