Instagram Takeover: Le Tings

Launched on 01 July 2020

Curator Harris Elliott, stylist Bevan Agyemang and poet Julianknxx explore fashion's inbuilt racist systems through a six-day takeover of the SHOWstudio Instagram account, to continue the conversations brought to widespread attention at June 2020's Black Lives Matter protests. The trio use Instagram Live interviews, videos and collages to explore the work, perspectives and references of Black fashion talent, from menswear designer Bianca Saunders to Liverpool School of Design fashion programme leader Andrew Ibi, and many more.
