    A little bit of fashion history!

    The Central Saint Martins MA Fashion show at London Fashion Week has sparked so many brilliant stories and fashion legends. Remember when Isabella Blow bought Lee McQueen's collection in its entirety, saving up to buy it piece by piece and taking him with her to the cash point each week? Or how about when Mrs B bought John Galliano's graduate collection Les Incroyables (above) to put in the window of Browns? Or when Galliano himself bought all of Kim Jones' collection to put in his archive? So naturally I'm really excited that SHOWstudio is now selling one-off items from the MA 14 class. Buy some fashion history here...

    1 Granary Issue 2

    The SHOWstudio team are loving the new issue of 1 Granary! The magazine features stunning editorials, including Nick Knight's shoot of the MA collections - some of which are exclusively available through SHOWstudio Shop.

    My personal highlight in the issue is Zoe Dickens' piece on Quentin Jones. Our recent SHOWcabinet on Maison Martin Margiela's practice featured an illustration by the multi-talented Jones. Her impressive career has involved working with industry greats Chanel and Vuitton and she comes across both modest and likeable in the interview. Quentin Jones - I'm a fan!

    1 Granary Issue 2 is out now!

    SHOWstudio in 1 Granary

    The team at SHOWstudio have been thrilled to be involved in the making of the new issue of 1 Granary. Our own Nick Knight shot an editorial for the magazine, which is made by the students of Central Saint Martins and focuses on detailing all the exciting work that goes on at the college and the adventures of alumni. You can see all the images here.

    On a personal note - I was so pleased to be invited by the title's contributing editor Greg French to, alongside SHOWstudio's former fashion director (and my dear friend) Alex Fury, feature in the magazine. The article details Alex and my experiences of working at SHOWstudio, our outlook on working in fashion and our early influences. It was lots of fun to spend a few hours being silly with Alex and I hope our comments are both fun and informative.

    You can buy the issue here.

    Lily Cole discusses taking control of her image

    Our Subjective series continues! This week Nick Knight speaks to Lily Cole, who recalls being photographed by Juergen Teller for her first ever nude shoot.

    Cole discusses a series of pictures taken in Greece for Paradis magazine when she was just eighteen, opening up about what prompted her to move away from her established image; 'I kept being put in that box of little fairy tale, doll-like character, and at some point I just wanted to fuck with it,' she says.

    The two also discuss the element of control involved in fashion photography, the differences between modelling and acting, and why Cole went on to cover French Playboy; 'I quite like the idea of my grandkids' grandma being on the cover of Playboy.'

    Collaboration

    One of my favourite shoots of 2014 (so far) was a multidisciplinary project for Under the Influence Magazine and SHOWstudio. For this project I worked with stylist Ellie Grace Cumming to photograph punk singer and artist Aza Shade. We wanted to show the different guises Aza adopts during her stage performances and cut the story into sections devoted to these characters. The Marquis de Sade, Iggy Pop, Stevie Nicks and KISS were amongst our inspirations.

    What resulted was not only a fashion story, but also a fashion film called The Misfortune of Desire where black and white visuals of Aza are accompanied by a spoken word piece by No Wave sorceress Lydia Lunch. Nick Knight stepped in to add yet another dimension to this story, creating an audiovisual interview with Aza that accompanied the piece both in print and on SHOWstudio.

    For me it's always an interesting challenge to approach photography from a new angle by making room for new collaborators. It often creates a more complex process, but through that process you inevitably find surprising, and ultimately rewarding ways to create new work. See the images in Under the Influence Magazine.

    Julie Verhoeven on show!

    Today in the studio we're shooting new product shots of Peter Saville and Julie Verhoeven's brilliant erotic wallpaper, Forget-Me-Not. The paper was commissioned as part of our SHOWstudio: Fashion Revolution exhibition at Somerset House back in 2009. It is a personal favourite of mine and I have actually bought a couple of rolls to put up in my own apartment. Where to paste it?! That's the question.

    It's apt that we're thinking about Julie today as the artist has a new exhibition opening later this week! Julie Og Jimmy Go Dogging is a collaborative project between Julie and Jimmy Merris. It was instigated by curator Lars Sture and promises to offer 'a simultaneously humorous and disturbing portrait of everyday life.' How exciting!

    If you find yourself in Bergen, Norway at any point from 29 August and 26 October 2014 be sure to drop by. Details here!

    Oh - and if you've got a few minutes it's well worth revisiting SHOWstudio graduate Penny Martin's brilliant interview with Julie, launched on the site way back when!

    Charles Jeffrey draws Grace Wales Bonner's CSM graduate collection

    SHOWstudio friend and collaborator Rei Nadal introduced us to the wonderful artist Charles Jeffrey. He illustrated the Spring/Summer 2014 haute couture collections for SHOWstudio capturing gowns from Jean Paul Gaultier to Maison Martin Margiela through a series of abstruse, colourful drawings on found detritus, torn paper and even his own chest. Jeffrey has now depicted the CSM graduate collection of Grace Wales Bonner in these fantastic illustrations. Ethan O'Connor writes about them here:

    'Afrique. C’est chic. Ideas of African masculinity and its trans-Atlantic mutation is the basis upon which Grace Wales Bonner made her A/W14 collection. Depicted through Charles Jeffrey’s elegantly scratchy illustrations, the graduate collection that gained notoriety for its multi-layered approach to wearability is now translated by Jeffrey for SHOWstudio. Figures in flares amidst sandy smudges, flowery cutout borders and scanned plastic wallets combine “art materials” with visually stimulating primitivism. The setting of Bonner’s collection was a landscape which provided the flamboyance of 1970’s black dress, with the attitude of artists like Kerry James Marshall and Samuel Fosso, a hybrid of West-African ideas about being male. Noticeably, the inspiration of Jean-Michel Basquiat flutters above the heads of the illustrated models. Jeffrey’s clever, Crayola-esque idols in their mohair suits and beaded bags allow us to absorb a welcome, refreshed image of Bonner’s vision.'

    Kate Moss gems from our archive

    Enjoyed today's interview with Kate Moss? We've built up quite an archive of projects starring the incomparable model over the years. There's the intimate and playful Billie Jean - Mossy doing her best Michael Jackson impression. There's Editing Kate, where footage filmed during Nick Knight's editorial shoot for Vogue Italia is re-used and re-interpreted by a selection of video editors. There's also White Wedding - back in 2008 when Joe Corre was still at the helm of Agent Provocatuer, Nick Knight and Ruth Hogben created a campaign and six fashion films for the British lingerie brand depicting Moss as a jilted bride hell-bent on revenge. And then there's that time, when asked how she wanted to express Moving Fashion, she responded to the brief with 'I just want to pogo.'

    My personal favourite? As a dedicated follower of nineties fashion, it can only be the recently released but two decades old The More Visible They Make Me, The More Invisible I Become, the first time Knight shot Moss, and only the second fashion film he made.
