Bella Freud “Submission”


Designer Bella Freud (daughter of the late painter Lucien Freud) has collaborated with director Martina Amati to create of short film for her 2011 Fall collection called Submission. The film stars models Susie Bick, Abbey Lee Kershaw, as well as actresses Antonia Campbell Hughes, Phyllis Wang and Olympia Campbell. Submission takes place in the world of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu “where you learn to use your opponent’s strength to vanquish them. The unlikely winner engages us in her internal dialogue, remembering the moment in her childhood when she discovered how she wanted clothes to serve her as a protective armor”. Freud premiered her short film last week in London definitely worth a watch.
