[1 of 3 + 1 AP]
S/S 2021 employs experimental 3D modelling and rendering to create a playful digital catwalk for his Bruce Asbestos' Spring/Summer collection. Informed by research trips to New York City, Chicago and Philadelphia combined with Asbestos’s love of American pop culture, the outfits shown on the catwalk muse on the power of cultural identity within a globalised visual culture.
The S/S catwalk features wild interpretations of American icons including ‘Kroc’, a crocodile character based on the American McDonald’s tycoon Ray Kroc, who made the company a defining symbol of American capitalism.
