This is Fetherston's fourth short film and her first time collaborating with Crawford, who is notably the niece of famed independent film director Paul Morrissey. The story, loosely inspired by the tale of the pied piper, shows Fetherston uncovering a magical trumpet which has washed ashore beneath the Brooklyn Bridge. Under the power of its enchantment, the designer takes to the streets of New York City and begins to collect a following of characters who emerge from the stoops and windows of the city's apartments, restaurants and ally-ways, all of whom are drawn to the magic. Fetherston and her collective, all dressed in the designer's collection, carry on in a near manic and highly visual procession through the streets of the West Village and Tribeca.
A medley of dynamic girls make appearances in this film, including musical artists Reni Lane, whose Universal Records album will drop this September, and Kelsey Barrett of the all female punk band Effi Briest. Actress Paz De La Huerta makes a surprise cameo and Fetherston favorite, model/actress Ingrid Schram also plays a role in the film – her second time getting in front of the camera for Fetherston. Models Daria Strokous, Kelsey Close, Rudi Ovchinnikova, Sacha Blue, and Karina G also join the procession of beauties who partake in this magical, fashionable parade through the city.
