“Knight is once again following his foresight, this time tapping into a technology he believes will eventually have more cultural influence than fashion photography: Web3. […] At a time when the traditional fashion industry and Web3 are still often at odds in terms of taste and tradition, Knight – who has built deep relationships with fashion and the media for decades – is uniquely positioned to drill. “”
– Meghan McDowellBusiness in vogue
Long term is the word for this project. Although riding the wave of a current technological obsession […] – Knight’s expansion of humanity into the web space began over 20 years ago, at a time when fashion’s relationship with the internet could be politely described as hectic.”
– Alex FuryAnother Magazine
“There are simply no rules when it comes to the British director. In fact, his whole calling has centered on rejecting the formula that has dominated image-making for decades. […] A non-binary spearhead, Jazzelle is best known for her craftsmanship that subverts traditional standards of beauty, instead celebrating the weird and the wonderful.”
