In an effort to promote its new Master of Professional Studies program, the School of Visual Arts is holding its first-ever New York Fashion Film Festival. The one-year program offers practicing photographers the opportunity to advance their work under the guidance of veteran photographers, editors, creative directors and digital retouchers working at the forefront of fashion.
The program will be co-chaired by Stephen Frailey, photographer and chair of the BFA Photography Department at SVA and Jimmy Moffat, founder of Art + Commerce. The two have assembled leading figures from the fashion industry, including photographers Nick Knight, Ryan McGinley, Solve Sundsbo and Tim Walker, along with creative directors Fabien Baron and Glenn OBrien, and style editors Alix Browne and Andrew Richardson. These professionals will be joined by critics, including Cathy Horyn of The New York Times and Vince Aletti of The New Yorker.
