This week, as part of our Punk: DIY series, we are proud to introduce She's Just Being M1ley, a fashion film produced by Central Saint Martins student Gareth Wrighton! The work couldn't be more in tune to the zeitgeist given post-VMA Miley-mania this week!
Earlier this year, SHOWstudio launched a major fashion film and animation competition to celebrate this season's theme of punk. Fashion filmmakers and animators were asked to create a short film featuring a one-off DIY-inspired garment, which also reflected their own personal interpretation of the movement.
'I was inspired by the accessibility of the plain white t-shirt to the punk scene, and how it was used as a platform to promote the messages of the cause the the wider public.', explains Wrighton. 'I further examined this accessibility against other methods of self publication, including zines and more recently, the use of digital media for social activism in the 21st century'.
