London/Tokyo based artist Mitsuru Isshiki directs these haunting fashion films.

The 27 year old director collaborates with designers, musicians, artists. Drawing inspiration from several mediums, the artist directs and compiles these fashion films. Taken from abstract angles, with creative lighting techniques, these videos give fashion a new edge. The multi media approach to fashion allows for the clothing to gain a certain edge. What would have been a simple photo spread becomes an interactive experience. The emotion driven through the attire comes to life.

In ‘Fashion Film 09,’ Mitsuru Isshiki combines dry, raw textures with a fiercely adorned model. The effect is serpent-like. Once the primal-style drum is introduced, a slight onset of anxiety occurs as the heart beats becomes more and more rapid. The video is supercharged and leaves a lasting impression. Very. Fierce.
