What is KCTV?

by jennine on December 4, 2008

It’s the coolest fashion site no one ever talks about. KCTV is a mystery. I’d ask them directly about it, or rather Kenny Campbell and Tatu Vuolteenaho the founders, but I don’t want to appear stupid and naive, so I’m going to announce to all of you my naivete. I bump into KCTV when searching for up and coming interesting designers, randomly in IQONs and a few times mentioned in Diane Pernet’s fashion socialite pics. But when I run a search in my reader (and I’m subscribed to a lot of blogs) Only Ashadedview and Fashion156 mention them.

“KCTV is a mixture of an online magazine, creative web space and a showcase. It has editorial content produced by contributors as in magazines and … is open and flexible for creative experiments and from that point of view it is more than just an online magazine.”via FashionNL

What I love is  wonderful animated flash fashion spreads, with this kind of runway-electro-music and out of this world photos that dance to the beat. Browsing through the archives you can see some of Gareth Pugh’s earlier work and  some newer designers just breaking the surface of the mainstream like Sadak and Kling Kling. Don’t forget stop by the events pictures if you’re feeling particularly voyeuristic.

So without much further ado, here are some screenshots of the spreads I really like…

Les Invalides

Metabods

Paradis Aeidae

Intriguing! I’ve never heard of them before, but I’m especially loving the last two sets. I’ll definitely have to check them out!
