• Premiere party in association with the new Range Rover Evoque
Fashion and beauty bible InStyle
has gathered some of the world's top fashion designers to each create a short film exploring style. Building on the collaboration, each designer has produced a limited-edition December cover for InStyle
The seven fashion designers commissioned for Film InStyle
are: Roberto Cavalli, Christian Louboutin, Mulberry's Emma Hill, Henry Holland, Paul Smith, Zac Posen
and Diane von Furstenberg
. Working with an eclectic roll call of directors, the brands have created shorts that convey their interpretation of style, ranging from the exuberant to the dreamy and scripted drama to dance.
Before appearing on www.instyle.co.uk
, the seven films will be screened at a London premiere sponsored by the new Range Rover Evoque
. InStyle is taking over The Sanctum Soho Hotel, which for one night will become Hotel InStyle, while a fleet of Range Rovers will be on hand for VIP guests. InStyle
editor Eilidh MacAskill says: "Fashion and film are two of InStyle's greatest loves so we were absolutely thrilled that such incredible designers signed up for Film InStyle, one of our most ambitious projects. Fashion films are fast becoming the new music video and we're delighted to be at the forefront and championing creativity."

The relationship the brand has with the world's fashion elite can be seen in the pages of the magazine and on instyle.co.uk. This project shows the exceptional concepts that we can deliver."
