Tumblr Takeover: Liberty McAnena

Launched on 01 June 2015

Recently at SHOWstudio, we've been thinking about the interplay between the past and the future. While working on our recent projects exploring the legacy of Alexander McQueen, we've been struck by the enthusiasm for archive footage and the popularity of early nineties and noughties editorials on social media. With this in mind, we invited fashion history and theory graduate Liberty McAnena to takeover the SHOWstudio Tumblr with a nostalgia-focused curation.
