In October 2015, Nick Knight announced that SHOWstudio, in collaboration with QIC Global Real Estate, would be launching our first ever fashion film award.
The subsequent winner was Maksim Bashkaev from Moscow, Russia, with his film, Outlaw. The premise of the film is to look into the unexplored life of 'the outlaw people' of Moscow, focusing on the controversial people who take an alternative route, combining the mixed cultural patterns of Empire and Soviet eras. The work of the 'Outlaws' is dedicated to fighting isolation, representing 'the other' Russia: open, intellectual and free.
