Event description

Description

Style to the End is a short film commissioned by NOWNESS as part of their The Way We Dress series.  

Directed by Avril Furnes 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 Heatherley Wood.  

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.

The film will be free to view, but there will be a cocktail bar open for after the film and visitors will be able to view the other exhibitions on at Sutton House after the screening.
