Synopsis

A cursed red gown rains demonic misfortune upon its hapless owners in the latest off-the-wall flight of imagination from the director of THE DUKE OF BURGUNDY and BERBERIAN SOUND STUDIO.


It is winter in 1970s Britain and lonely divorcée Sheila has a blind date. Shopping for a dress, she ends up at the eccentric and eerie Dentley & Soper’s Trusted Department Store where a witchy saleswoman sells her a hypnotically gorgeous ‘artery red’ dress. A wild, unpredictable journey begins...


With its blend of ravishing colours, sounds and textures, Peter Strickland's IN FABRIC straddles the line between campy high-art and chilling menace as it serves up an idiosyncratic array of indelible characters and imagery. Not least amongst an otherworldly cornucopia of delights is as an absurdist satire of the hypnotic appeal of consumerism.
