    Tessa Edwards' S/S 15 collection

    These images are from Tessa Edwards' S/S 15 collection, made in collaboration with the artist Penny Slinger. The collection and documentary (to be released at the end of the year) explores the new wave of post-internet feminism - self expression made paradoxically possible and problematic by the internet and social media.

    Catch up on the J.W. Anderson and Erdem panels now!

    If you happened to miss our two most recent live panels on the subjects of J.W.Anderson and Erdem S/S 15 shows, don’t panic! Both panels, which feature an array of special guests musing on this season's runway offerings are now available to watch on-demand!

    Watch the J.W. Anderson panel - featuring our own Lou Stoppard, milliner Stephen Jones, Wonderland's Andrew Davis, Claire de Rouen's Lucy Moore, The ICA's Matt Williams and LCF's Maggie Norden - covered a plethora of subjects from the increasing wearability of the designer's pieces to the idea of combining mens and womenswear on the runways. 'I want my own clothes' Moore commented, 'we still need categories from which to depart'. 

    Our Erdem discussion, with designer Caroline Charles, LCF's Frances Corner and editor Dal Chodha focused on the 'cocktail dress' stereotype of London Fashion Week designers' output, as well as the news of the designer's upcoming store - 'A store is the last place where you can look at clothes in isolation' said Chodha. 

    Watch these exciting discussions, and learn from the experts now!

    SHOWstudio unites with Northern Soul Girl

    Levanna Mclean is a young woman from Bristol who became an online sensation after uploading clips of herself dancing to northern soul music on YouTube under the psyendonim 'Northern Soul Girl'. The videos are filmed and edited by her mother Eve Arslett. Both Arslett and Mclean, who began uploading the videos while still a student at Winterbourne International Ridings Academy, were totally overwhelmed by the popularity of the videos, some of which have received nearly a quarter of a million views. In 2014, after the success of a video of her dancing to Pharrell William's Happy, she was invited by the musician to dance on stage with him at the Brit awards.

    Captivated by Mclean's carefree spirit, Nick Knight invited her to create a film specially for SHOWstudio. Katy England styled, selecting fashion by Gucci, Lanvin, Miu Miu and more. 'I prefer to think of northern soul as not having a particular style - the style is simply being who you are,' explains Mclean.

    Watch the film now - it's the happiest thing you'll see all day!

    Gold-leafing the cove!

    What a varied job I have! Fresh from chairing this morning's live Marc Jacobs panel discussion, I got to work covering the walls of our studio with gold leaf. As you can see Charlotte Knight and I are not afraid to get our hands dirty! Tune into our broadcasts all across fashion month to see brilliant expets discuss the shows while surrounded by gold. How very Spandau Ballet of us. Or maybe Goldfinger was the refeence. Or perhaps Tutankhamun. I'll have to ask Nick Knight, it was his bright idea.

    Project Tea Cosy

    Please enable JavaScript to view this content.

    BFC Headonism (the BFC's milinery initiative headed up by acclaimed milliner and SHOWstudio friend Stephen Jones) has teamed up with luxury china brand Wedgwood on Project Teacosy! Launched in 2009, BFC Headonism offers young milliners mentoring by Jones and showcasing opportunities with installations at London Fashion Week. Wedgwood has invited the four hatmakers - Awon Golding, Lizzie McQuade, Emma Yeo and Keely Hunter - to create a contemporary and unique tea cosy for a Wedgwood teapot, thus allowing them to investigate and celebrate the heritage brand's 250-year history of great craftsmanship and design. The designers were given privileged access to the Wedgwood pattern and china archives during their visit to the factory, documented in a short film here!

    Project Tea Cosy will be displayed within the Designer Showrooms at London Fashion Week from 12 to 16 September 2014 along with the other films documenting project.
