Couture Critiques updates and reinterprets Edward Said’s 1993 Oxford Reith Lectures “Representations of the Intellectual” in the filmic language of MTV’s 90s’ hit show House of Style. In an information era, with too little knowledge, where is the truth and who is telling it? And when they do, are we listening? Or are we tuned into something more pleasant, entertaining and stylish? Directed, written, and hosted by Mandy Harris Williams (with co-director Keenan MacWilliam), Couture Critiques renews an elemental conversation about representation in an era where the media is not just mass, but omnipresent.
