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.
