    Shaun Leane In Fashion. Tune in today!
    Watch the interview at 12:00 BST

    Tune in to SHOWstudio’s In Fashion series for a live interview today, where our own editor Lou Stoppard will meet with acclaimed Avant-Garde jeweller Shaun Leane. The discussion will be streamed at 12:00 BST. 

    Shaun embarked upon his career at the tender age of fifteen when he trained at London’s jewellery center, Hatton Garden. He has since flourished into a fully accomplished jeweller and was awarded 'UK Luxury Jewellery Designer of the Year' in 2006 and 2009.

    His stylistic qualities are premised on the notion of fusing the past with the present. Leane’s design conception consists of keeping alive historical British tradition while simultaneously adding a modern, cutting-edge approach. ‘We cannot look to the future of design without remembering our past,’ he says. 

    The interview looks set to answer some interesting questions concerning one of the UK’s most exciting, homegrown artisans. Watch live at 12:00 BST!

    SHOWstudio x AMBUSH jewellery

    SHOWstudio shop is collaborating with design collective AMBUSH! Partners in work and life, Yoon and Verbal set up AMBUSH in Tokyo in 2002. Yoon states that, 'We didn’t see what we wanted in the market so we decided to make the jewels ourselves. Everything we do has a DIY spirit and intertwines with each other.' From there the company has grown from strength to strength with supporters including Kanye West and Pharell Williams.

    Valerie Steele talks Ugliness with Lou Stoppard
    Read the interview now!

    Over the weekend our Ugly project - which looks at high fashion designers who deliberately produce 'ugly' items - kicked off with a live fashion film shoot! Today, the project continues with an in-depth conversation between our own Lou Stoppard and curator, writer and renowned fashion expert Valerie Steele! Utilising Steele's vast cultural and historical knowledge, and drawing on her experience as director and chief curator of The Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology, the interview explored the subject of ugliness in fashion. Topics ranged from Schiaparelli and Poiret's experiments with new ideas of beauty to deliberate bad taste and the 'secret society' element of high fashion appreciation. 

    'So, your eye changes - that's what fashion is about. Suddenly something will look right that looked ugly only a few months earlier. But of course a few months later it may switch and start looking ugly again!' explains Steele.

    Read the absorbing interview now, and stay tuned for essays by other respected fashion writers!

    Today at 13:30 BST

    Prompted by the upcoming Royal College of Art 2014 graduate fashion show, we're excited to be hosting a live panel discussion dissecting the topic of fashion education, led by editor Lou Stoppard. The panelists include acclaimed writer Iain R. Webb, designers Matthew Miller and Holly Fulton, and the RCA's Head of Programmes and Dean of School Wendy Dagworthy, once described by The Telegraph as 'the high priestess of British fashion'. As thousands of fashion students prepare to leave college and find their place within the fashion industry, our panelists question the necessity of studying fashion in order to forge a successful career, share their own experiences of fashion school and discuss the future of fashion education.

    Tune in today at 13:30 BST to watch the live debate!
