The Fashionistas is a 2002 pornographic film directed by John Stagliano and produced by Evil Angel Productions. Shot on 35 mm film, it was a high-budget production (with a budget of about $500,000),[2] with a length of over four and a half hours. The film was a commercial success, selling over 100,000 copies just in its first month of release.[2] In 2003, it set the record for most AVN Award nominations for a single title — 22.[1]

There was also a theatrical dance show based on the film called The Fashionistas Live Show, which won the 'AVN Special Achievement Award' in 2006.[3] The film has had two sequels, Fashionistas Safado: The Challenge and Fashionistas Safado: Berlin, both still directed by Stagliano.[2]


The Fashionistas are an up-and-coming group of fetish fashion designers led by Helena (Taylor St. Claire) and based in the Fashion District of Los Angeles.[1] The group is trying to land a deal with Italian fetish fashion designer Antonio (Rocco Siffredi).[1] Antonio, who recently divorced amid highly publicized rumors of extramarital affairs, arrives in Los Angeles in search of an s/m-influenced house to partner with.[4] In order to grab Antonio's attention, the Fashionistas crash his fashion show.[1] Helena wants Antonio to believe she is the creative force behind the Fashionistas, even though it is actually Jesse (Belladonna), her assistant.[1] Jesse also engages in a triangular relation with Helena and Antonio.[2]
