    Tom Ford S/S 16 fashion film by Nick Knight

    Launching today, Tom Ford has joined forces with SHOWstudio’s director Nick Knight and stylist Carine Roitfeld for a new take on a fashion show.

    Deciding to forego the traditional catwalk show this season, the exclusive fashion film features Tom Ford’s S/S 16 womenswear collection. Ford's fashion show sees models dance down the runway, soundtracked by Lady Gaga's cover of Nile Rodgers and Chic's I Want Your Love. Gaga herself appears in the film alongside models Mica Arga, Lexi Bolling, Kayla Scott, Xiao Wen Ju, Valery Kaufman, Aymeline Valade, Lida Fox, Lucky Blue Smith, Alex Dunstan, David Agbodji and Tarun Nijjer.

    Ford explains: 'Having a runway show has become so much about the creation of imagery for online and social media and watching a filmed fashion show can be like watching a filmed play (which is never very satisfying). I wanted to think about how to present a collection in a cinematic way that was designed from its inception to be presented online.'

    Watch the film here and check out what else is happening at fashion week in our Collections page.

    Isamaya Ffrench for Christopher Shannon S/S 16

    Our Transformative series, in tandem with our Subjective project, is back. 

    This week's installment of the series, which delves behind-the-scenes of famous imagery with hairdressers, make-up artists and stylists whose work featured in the photographs, sees Isamaya Ffrench interviewed about her work for Christopher Shannon’s S/S 16 menswear show.

    Nick Knight asks the make-up artist about feeling intimidated, her relationship with hairstylists, whether she feels fear before a shoot and the thought-process behind the bushy eyebrows at Christopher Shannon

    Ffrench muses: 'If I can have a moment, I try to go for it. In sixty years, I’m not going to be worrying that I missed that opportunity because there will be others.'

    Tune in to the interview now and make sure you catch up with Sam McKnight's and Val Garland's episodes.

    'Screw' project by Nick Knight and Katy England

    In our latest project named Screw, Nick Knight was joined by Katy England for a photo shoot, which appeared in the A/W 15 issue of AnOther Man magazine. Titled 'Tendency of Species', the editorial is influenced by religious iconography and pin-up posters and sees models clad in Riccardo Tisci’s A/W 15 and S/S 16 menswear offerings for Givenchy.

    Inspired by the concept of gang culture, incarceration and prison wall pin-ups, Knight and England subverted this world by merging traditional, heterosexual masculinity with the unexpected and avant-garde. Models are seen spread on prison beds, portraying characters such as the pious worshipper and the work-out-obsessed body boy.

    Peruse the editorial here and check out the footage from the live shoot available on SHOWstudio now.

    Rob Phillips illustrates Paris Fashion Week

    As the fashion season moves to Paris, we have invited creative director Rob Phillips to illustrate key looks from the S/S 16 shows.

    He describes himself as an image-maker, someone who is not afraid to try new things and experiment. The fluid lines of his artwork are accented with punchy colourings and capture the whole vibe of the setting, making his pieces incredibly evocative.

    Phillips has a multi-disciplinary approach to his work, being a fashion consultant, commentator, writer and tutor at London College of Fashion as well as illustrator. His creative process is very holistic and organic, underpinned by research, reference, project planning, teamwork and communication.

    Gary Warnett talks the history of hoodies Sportswear

    In the latest instalment of Sportswear, a project exploring the history of key garments motivated by the influence of sporty shapes in high-fashion, Gary Warnett talks about the history of the hooded sweatshirt and how it became prominent in sport as well as fashion.

    He notes the 80s as 'the point where the hoodie ceases to be an athletic item and becomes a real statement of fashion. The small 'c' of Champion became a colossal signifier and a staple.' Unlike in the 80s when kids in the UK had to track down a hoodie, now, Warnett says 'it's like a Starbucks or a McDonald's. You're never more than ten minutes away from somewhere you can probably buy a hoodie. No matter where you are.'
