On Saturday 27 June the WWWSHOWW from the Antwerp Academy went live for a worldwide network of fashion lovers. This year the academy presented the work of 122 bachelor students and 9 master students in an alienating digital 3D landscape built by creative agency Random Studio.
Fashion students showed their work on a virtual catwalk, which brought drawings, photos, and videos to life with technical gadgets and various 'camera positions'. The 9 graduating Master students showed their collections not only in the digital environment. In between the shows, video conversations are shown between the students and renowned designers and fashion journalists such as Dries van Noten, Alber Elbaz, and Raf Simons, in which the students explain their collections. This makes their work comprehensible and digital presentations human.
The WWWSHOWW can still be viewed the whole year through www.showww.be .
