Don’t miss the premiere of Laura Siegel’s fashion documentary “Traceable” tonight
Designer Laura Siegel’s documentary airs tonight on Bell Media.
In early 2013,
Canadian fashion designer Laura Siegel headed to India—one of the many trips she takes each year to source artisans and fabrics for each collection of her eponymous label—with a film crew to document how clothes are made. This was just months before the deadly collapse of the Rana Plaza garment factory in Bangladesh—and arguably, the same amount of time before retailers and consumers alike really started to take notice of how and where their clothing is made.
The trip resulted in
Traceble, a fashion documentary of a whole other sort—which premiered at the Raindance Film Festival last year—and airs tonight at 8pm across Bell Media properties (E!, MTV, Bravo and M3, a roadblock event). Last night Fashion Revolution Organization hosted a screening of the film in Brooklyn to commemorate the two-year anniversary of the Rana Plaza Factory collapse. The film, which was written and directed by Canadian filmmaker Jennifer Sharpe and produced by Lauren Grant, was also recently nominated for Best Documentary Arts & Culture at the Yorkton Film Festival in Saskatoon. So, what are you doing tonight? Traceable
debuts on Bell Media on E!, MTV, M3, and Bravo tonight at 8 p.m. EST. It will also be screening in Vancouver tonight as part of Vancouver Eco-Fashion Week.
