Poetry In Motion

Launched on 21 March 2021

To explore the enduring bond between poetry and fashion, SHOWstudio invite poets to respond to the most striking garments from the recent fashion shows. Using the art form they hold most dear, poets are tasked with putting into words the emotional and often violently moving impact fashion can have on an individual, from Miuccia Prada to John Galliano for Maison Margiela, through to Rei Kawakubo's Comme des Garçons Homme Plus and Yohji Yamamoto.
