A surreal short fashion film commissioned by the Victoria and Albert museum in collaboration with Art Jameel. 

Follow Leila as she accidentally falls asleep at the museum and wakes up to find herself locked inside and seemingly alone. As she roams the halls in search of a way out, she enters a surreal world where fantastical objects come to life in the shadows – blurring the distinction between reality and fantasy, light and darkness, conscious and subconscious. 

 This Friday Late fashion film is commissioned as part of the V&A’s Jameel programming. Directed by visual artist Nadira Amrani, it features looks from Sheryn Akiki, Karim Adduchi, Tatyana Antoun, and Nabil Nayal, which take inspiration from their Lebanese, Moroccan, and Syrian heritage.
