    Naomi Campbell talks Bruce Weber

    Our rolling model interview series, Subjective, is back. In the first instalment of 2015, supermodel Naomi Campbell remembers modelling for photographer Bruce Weber alongside her friend, boxer Mike Tyson.

    Comparing the experience of working with Weber to The Godfather, Campbell describes his shoots as, 'very family - he wants everyone together and he’s shooting the whole way through. If you’re not even dressed sometimes he’s still shooting.' 'Is he loud as a photographer?' asks Nick Knight, ‘No Bruce is soft, very moderate voiced, very sweet’ replies Campbell.

    The two also discussed the power of the internet, with Campbell describing fellow model Cara Delevingne as a 'rock star' in terms of her staggering social media following.

    Stay tuned for on-demand footage of David Downton's In Fashion interview

    David Downton visited the studio this afternoon for a very special chat with Lou Stoppard about his life in fashion.

    Beginning with first realising his talent or ‘knack’ for capturing likenesses as a child in rural Kent - ‘I thought I was a genius’ - Downton talks through the frustrations of art college and his early commercial work as a graphic artist. Launched into the fashion industry relatively late in his career as an illustrator, he recalls the story of his very first visit to Paris in 1996 to cover the haute couture shows, walking straight into a Valentino fitting with supermodel Amber Valetta: ‘I went into Narnia’. Offering opinions on the ‘sympathy’ between photography and illustration, the digital revolution gripping the industry, and full of stories of his spirited subjects, Downton explains the enduring magic of his medium: ‘Paul Klee said drawing is taking a line for a walk; fashion drawing is taking it dancing.’ 

    On-demand footage of the entire interview will be available to watch from tomorrow, Wednesday 7 January 2015. In the meanwhile revisit the rest of our In Fashion series, featuring fashion luminaries from Daphne Guinness to Lady Amanda Harlech. As an extra treat, all the interviews are available to download as podcasts from iTunes.
