It's movie marathon day: fashion movies

I love fashion history since I was little, thanks to my wonderful granny (she was a seamstress). What I love about fashion is its bond with art, so I’m not talking about the economic side or the shopping addiction. 277 more words

Film Title

Blow-Up

Director

Michelangelo Antonioni

Starring

  • David Hemmings as Thomas
  • Vanessa Redgrave as Jane
  • Sarah Miles as Patricia
  • Jane Birkin as The Blonde
