ANCIELA AW22 London Fashion Week “The Dance Of The Migrant ”

Anciela presents its Autumn-Winter 22 womenswear collection with a short film inspired by the famous Colombian flower festival and the history of the “Silletero” the porters who used to carry people, food and flowers since colonial times through the Andes on a chair (‘silleta’’) on their backs.
The collection will explore this tradition as an analogy for the journey of a migrant and the weight and beauty of being different and adapting to a new environment.
In a “Dogville” inspired set that decorates the dark East London Arcola theatre, the video shows the different stages and emotions of the journey, in a series of chapters that break the fourth wall in a mix of dance and performance. By adding models holding handwritten cardboard signs, in a Couture inspired quick catwalk that breaks the rising tension from the dance, the video uses humour to keep you somehow distant from what is happening. Featuring different Latin-British performers and Latin film crew the brand keeps supporting its own creative community in London.
