In support of its commitment to emerging talent worldwide and the Global Fashion Engagement, Mercedes-Benz is proud to present a new episode of Fashion Creatives starring the sensational Hiplet™ Ballerinas of the Chicago Multicultural Dance Centre.
Founder and choreographer of the centre and the Hiplet™ dance form; Homer Bryant whose students include Malia and Sasha Obama is a former principle dancer of the Dance Theatre Harlem.
The whimsical short film, directed by L.A.-based award-winning director Ace Norton, reimagines a night at the museum where the worlds of dance and fashion collide within the futuristic architecture of the Mercedes-Benz museum.
To enhance Mercedes-Benz Fashion’s growing relationship with emerging creative talent, this humorous film features clothes by New York designer Sandy Liang. A Parsons: The New School alumna, Sandy quickly caught the attention of the fashion elite, adopting model, Soo Joo Park and buyer and stylist, Kate Foley as early supporters of her downtown aesthetic. The mannequins and dancers who feature in the film wear pieces from Sandy’s previous collections with a focus on her Resort 2016 line.
