If we’re defined by our official purpose, then we might call Alberto Belli – as he was on his this trip to Milan – a model. But he turned the trip into something else. Bored waiting in line at castings he took to doing something creative: filmmaking, his true calling.
“I’m a filmmaker by heart but I had the opportunity to travel to Milan for Fashion Week S/S 2013 as a model,” notes Belli in his video description. Impressively the film was shot on his iPad, a whirlwind of footage snipped together to give an impression of what the hot days of castings were like.
Titled The March of the Castings and cleverly set to Elgar’s famous Pomp and Circumstance march, it’s a perfectly-timed watch to get us in the spirit for the big four fashion weeks, which kick off with New York in a matter of days.
