Style to the End - A film screening - When fashion met death

  • Sutton House Homerton High Street London, England, E9 United Kingdom

Style to the End is a short film directed by Avril Furness.   It explores the outfits three women will wear to their graves.

Death is the corner stone to each of the women's lives;

Shabnam Spiers - A&E Doctor & Fashion Designer
Louise Winter - Creative Funeral Planner
Romany Reagan - Performing Heritage & Cemetery Studies PhD candidate and playwright

The three women give genuine accounts of what their terminal outfits will be, shot in several locations (as recommended by the Good Funeral Guide) including Mortlake Crematorium, Harrison's Funeral Home and GreenAcres natural burial ground.  

The film reveals the powerful emotions underlying both choosing a final outfit and confronting mortality, and shines a light on how fashion and style can frame a woman's final moments in life and in death. 

There'll be a screening of the film followed by a panel with the director and the stars of the film and the opportunity to see the Life. Death. Whatever. exhibition after hours.
