Friday 22nd Nov: "No Future Nomad" Fashion Film for SHOWstudio's PUNK season

As part of the SHOWstudio's ongoing PUNK project, the home of fashion film commissioned different creatives to collaborate and contribute a piece of moving image ……...

"Using Punk's central themes of dressing to provoke, DIY and self-expression, SHOWstudio asked a wide range of contemporary creatives to express their vision of punk now by creating a fashion film and garment. 'Punk was one of the most culturally important and far reaching movements in the last 100 years. Its influence is repeatedly seen every fashion season,' explains Nick Knight." 

I worked with my bessies Tom Ryling and Kim Howells to bring together our individual skills and style to join forces in one unique multi-disciplinary package.  It's been about grafting different elements together due to the nature of collaboration - which started with the cross textiles of denim from me and leather pieces from Tom, ending with Kim's canvas of casting and styling Jace - culminating in footage we shot together; to produce our combined interpretation of Punk, personified by our "No Future Nomad".  The film has just gone live over on SHOWstudio and the individual garments are also on sale at their SHOP.  I recommend checking out the entire expanse of content which includes enlightening interviews between Nick and each of the photographers behind the iconic Punk photos in the exhibition…………
