Moving Fashion

Launched on 29 September 2005

The printed page has determined the way fashion looks since women's magazines were first introduced. For over three centuries, garments have appeared as if frozen still. Nick Knight's key motivation for founding SHOWstudio was to investigate the representation of clothing through sound and motion; perhaps the last great challenge in fashion image making. Moving Fashion aimed to exploit this exciting new opportunity through an in-depth study of fashion film.
