Libidex collaborated with fashion film-maker Josh Brandao on his latest film “Blackened Wings”, for which we supplied latex costumes, so we’re delighted to hear that the film won the Coupe d’Or (first prize) at the Fashion Film Festival Chicago (FFFC) - an annual festival and competition which aims to celebrate the beauty and art of fashion as captured through the filmmaker’s lens.

Josh tells us his film was inspired by the ancient Greek legend of the Phoenix. Set in a Soviet-style military world, Blackened Wings tells the tale of a young boy fighting to overcome bullying and oppression. The film showcases not only our classic Neo Catsuit, but also pieces by Givenchy, Vivienne Westwood and Armani, amongst others.
