Koi Footwear X Graduate Fashion Week Competition Entry

  • Laura Elizabeth Henery

Mixing pop culture with techwear and anarchism, the "$udo shoe" sock trainers have been designed with sustainability in mind by Leeds Arts University Level 6 student Laura Elizabeth Henery for Koi Footwear in response to the Graduate Fashion Week live competition brief. Inspired by the film character computer hacker, Lisbeth Salander, the code ‘sudo rm-rf’ has been used as a surface pattern for the trims, a joke to any gamer, computer or internet nerd that understands what it means. (For reference, ‘sudo rm-rf’ when typed into the Terminal deletes everything on the computer)
