This year’s White Show was divided into three conceptual axes: VOID, ODYSSEY, and MONITUS. Have a look at the process behind the show’s production by the Fashion and Communication students
In the digital age it feels as if our right to autonomy seldom exists. Despite being observed, tracked, and monitored we disregard the encroachment of surveillance-based technologies on our daily ives. The system has gained access to every aspect of our identities through our reliance on interconnectivity, with surveillance strategies built into our devices and communities. As our reality feels more disconnected than ever we have taken the opportunity to reimagine The White Show, speaking explicitly about the supremacy of technology in modern society. Monitus will be showcasing the garments of BA Fashion Print and Knitwear students in an ironically digital location.
