For the 'Fashion Issue' of the latest Creative Review, Eliza Williams interviewed SHOWstudio’s founder and director, Nick Knight. Their discussion reveals the origins of the platform and the difficulties faced while trying to establish the site in a 'non-techie' world of fashion. Williams and Knight explore SHOWstudio’s journey in becoming an indispensable, pioneering and influential resource for the industry.
Knight stresses the importance of SHOWstudio being an advertisement-free site amongst an ocean of commercialised magazines and websites, 'I want to have an independent voice so I can allow the people I have here to speak freely, so I can speak freely and say what I want and not be in fear of losing funding.' These principles help make SHOWstudio a unique, creative and experimental platform. SHOWstudio gives models a voice, designers free reign and artists the space to play with their creativity.
