Revolt Into Style

Australia, 1997 (MIFF 1997, Documentary)

Director: Simon Burton, Mark Worth

Revolt into Style examines the emergence of young Australian designers at a time when streetwise chic punk music and a growing international awareness confronted the mainstream. Avant Garde creation either disappears or is absorbed by the mainstream it opposes. What happened? This is a high energy look at the designers, their work and the events surrounding the Fashion Design Council in the 1980's.
