London based fashion designer, Gareth Pugh is back after a 2 year hiatus with his latest fashion art installation entitled ‘The Reconstruction: A Visual Album’ running until the end of London Fashion Week.
Pugh joins other major fashion houses who have modified their entire 2020 schedule with alternative fashion shows due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The multimedia portfolio surrounds 13 avant-garde designs by Gareth Pugh.
The Reconstruction visual album, produced by Pugh’s creative studio Hard+Shiny, includes a short film directed and written by the designer's husband and business collaborator, Carson McColl. The virtual fashion exhibit showcases a diverse cast of talented artists and models, including Maggie Maurer, Georgia Moot, alongside musicians Rina Sawayama and IAMDDB.
McColl posted a video announcement to his Instagram account @McCollywood on Wednesday promoting the world premiere of ‘The Reconstruction’ project for free on Thursday, September 17th on YouTube at 5pm GMT. The creative minds behind the film along with Pugh will host a Q and A following the film's debut.
