The filmmaker behind BERBERIAN SOUND STUDIO and THE DUKE OF BURGUNDY now goes for sartorial scares with IN FABRIC, and a trailer has now appeared. See it after the jump, along with the poster.

Opening later this year from A24, IN FABRIC was written and directed by Peter Strickland and stars Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Hayley Squires, Leo Bill, and Gwendoline Christie. The synopsis: “A lonely woman (Marianne Jean-Baptiste), recently separated from her husband, visits a bewitching London department store in search of a dress that will transform her life. She’s fitted with a perfectly flattering, artery-red gown—which, in time, will come to unleash a malevolent curse and unstoppable evil, threatening everyone who comes into its path.”
