Staff Reports | Digital Free Press
FashFilmFete is hosting a question-and-answer series on film where fashion is a pivotal component from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 29, at the Phoenix Art Museum, which event officials there have coined a ‘Night at the Museum.’
FashFilmFete is spearheading a quarterly screening event to explore fashion as a storytelling element and underrepresented voices — specifically women and people of color — are celebrated.
“Similar to our annual festival – taking place at the Phoenix Art Museum on Sept. 23, 2023 – these quarterly screenings will feature a film that has the power to bring together both fashion and film aficionados alike to explore style in cinema and its influence on pop culture,” said FashFilmFete founder Mignon Gould.
Tickets to ‘Night at the Museum’ are $5 and can be purchased HERE.

Fresh Dressed is a fascinating, fun-to-watch chronicle of hip-hop, urban fashion and the hustle that brought oversized pants and graffiti-drenched jackets from Orchard Street to high fashion’s catwalks and Middle America shopping malls. Reaching deep into Southern plantation culture, the Black church and Little Richard, director Sacha Jenkins’ music-drenched history draws from a rich mix of archival materials.
