The worlds of film and fashion collided on Monday night at Veneto-based luxury outerwear brand Parajumpers’ cast dinner for Dee Rees’s “Mudbound” Oscar buzz movie during the Toronto International Film Festival. “Mudbound” is a film adaptation of Hillary Jordan’s prize-winning 2008 novel of the same name, which tells the story of two families, both at odds and tied together, while struggling to get by in the racially divided Deep South during World War II.
Celebrities and actors such as Mary J. Blige, Carey Mulligan, Garrett Hedlund, Rob Morgan and, “Straight Outta Compton’s,” Jason Mitchell, together with director Dee Rees, gathered to celebrate with industry influencers and Netflix executives to kick off its Awards Season presence.
“We felt honoured to be the hosts of this wonderful evening, celebrating such a talented cast and outstanding film. Parajumpers being aligned to MUDBOUND, the strong subject matter and media buzz surrounding Netflix’s new release, could not be a better brand fit for us. We have thoroughly enjoyed the evening and the company of our guests of honour, the MUDBOUND cast”
Parajumpers created 2 exclusive leather jackets for the occasion; 1 for Mary J. Blige and one to be auctioned off to raise funds for charity which was signed by the famous singer and actress.
