Note to fashion's itinerant class, currently perched in London. Please make Tacita Dean's "The Unilever Series" at Tate Modern a must see. It's an event, a pilgrimage and a rite of passage.

The film itself was constructed using disappearing techniques such as masking, double-exposure and glass matte painting, to recapture the sense of wonderment generated by these skills during the early days of cinema.
