ABOUT NIRMA MADHOO
I am a fashion film maker trained at the London College of Fashion. I situate my practice as transdisciplinary and my current work explores the performing body in fashion digital media with a posthumanist lens. Having trained originally as a fashion designer and with experience in fashion education in South Africa, I am currently registered as a PhD student at RMIT Melbourne researching fashion film for Virtual Reality [VR] platforms.
