Diane Pernet is a Paris-based American-born international fashion blogger and critic and founder of the international ASVOFF (A Shaded View on Fashion Film) festival.

Education and early career[edit]

Pernet was born in Washington, D.C. on October 8, and received a degree in documentary filmmaking from Temple University.[1] In addition to creating several films of her own, she has maintained a love for cinema ever since. Becoming a New York City fashion designer in the 1980s, she maintained a label of her own for 13 years.

Relocating to Paris in 1990, Diane Pernet's first job there was as a costume designer for director Amos Gitai[2] and his film Golem, l'Esprit d'Exile. Her work for the CBC's Fashion File programme led to an appointment at Hong Kong Joyce magazine, where she was the women's fashion editor for five years.

Fashion blog pioneer[edit]

Embracing fully the late-90s internet revolution, Diane took on a "Dr. Diane" fashion-advice column at Elle, and covered the runways for Vogue Paris.[3] Success in these endeavours led to the creation of one of the internet's first fashion blogs in 2005,[4] A Shaded View on Fashion (ASVOF),[5] an online fashion platform whose early success led The New York Times to anoint her "the original style blogger".[6] Also prolific on other social media platforms, she influences thousands with her daily fashion news and updates.[7]

Fashion film[edit]

In September 2006, to promote the launch of his brand's menswear line, Mark Eley of Eley Kishimoto commissioned her to make a documentary around a "Gumball 3000" (or "Gumball Rally") road-trip between London and Monte Carlo.[8][9] It was this project and the interest that it generated that rekindled her love for cinema and motivated her to invent the 'fashion film' genre. Rather than exploring the idea through actual film-making, she decided to make it an open celebration in which anyone who shared her interest could participate. This was the genesis of her first "You Wear it Well" fashion-film festival that she, with photographer Dino Dinco, curated at the Los Angeles CineSpace from August 1, 2006.[10]

This brainchild developed into a three-day A Shaded View on Fashion Film (ASVOFF) festival that was showcased for the first time in September 2008 at Paris' Jeu de Paume museum.[11] With fashion film as a centrepiece, ASVOFF developed into a yearly travelling international event with satellite conferences, performances and exhibitions.[12] Pernet has used the ASVOFF platform to support the photo-to-film transition for fashion mavericks including Nick Knight and Steven Klein.[13]antenna venues in fashion events the world over

In 2020, Diane Pernet signed a deal with Rocco Leo Gaglioti for a new A Shaded View on Fashion TV channel on the FNL Network. A Shaded View on Fashion (ASVOF) Season-12 broadcast for the first time on October 6, 2020.[60][61][62]

Film appearances[edit]

Pernet's iconic personal style has attracted cinematographer attention as well: she has figured in the Robert Altman film Prêt-à-Porter,[63] Roman Polanski's The Ninth Gate,[64] Larry Clark's The Smell of Us[65] and Ben Stiller's 2016 Zoolander 2.[66] In 2021, she also appeared in Harmony Korine's film-documentary Balanciaga: The Lost Tape[67] and the Season-2 finale for Emily in Paris.
