    Three fashion films by Charles Jeffrey

    SHOWstudio is delighted to present three fashion films which give an insight into the universe and menswear of Charles Jeffrey. The films document Jeffrey's Spring/Summer 2016 collection, which was showcased last month at Fashion East’s LC:M presentation.

    Inspired by Andy Warhol’s screen tests, Lixx Diaz’s LOVERBOY PEOPLE focuses on the Loverboy merrymakers, who take turns in front of the camera, reciting lines from teenage cult films. Devoid of colour and mood, the film portrays real people engaged in scripted conversations, allowing their voices and facial expressions to take centre stage.

    A process film by Gareth Wrighton and Campbell Addy, with music by Sega Bodega, documents Jeffrey's working process in the lead up to his S/S 16 London Fashion Week debut with Fashion East. Centering on the heavily tactile, impasto application of paint, which is integral to the making and decoration of his pieces. 

    Finally, a film by Rauwanne Northcott, If you’re a (LOVER) boy or a girl features scenes of Jeffrey’s club kids taking over the S/S 16 Fashion East presentation with a go-pro and Vogue. 

    Watch the films exclusively on SHOWstudio and look back at Charles Jeffrey’s LC:M debut with Fashion East now!

    Transformative: Val Garland on Gareth Pugh and Ruth Hogben

    Our Transformative series returns! This running series of exclusive interviews with stylists, makeup artists and hairdressers continues as influential makeup artist Val Garland shares her experiences of working with designer Gareth Pugh, filmmaker Ruth Hogben and M.A.C cosmetics. 

    Recalling Hogben’s fashion film to celebrate M.A.C’s collaboration with Pugh, Garland sat down with Nick Knight to discuss the difference between doing makeup for still images and films: ‘With photography, you have more time to make sure that what’s on your canvas is perfect from that angle- there’s more work involved for film because it’s got to look good from every angle, even the back.’ 

    Garland also talks about creative freedom- ‘Gareth said do what you want and that’s exactly what I wanted to hear’- and capturing Pugh’s distinctive aesthetic through the medium of makeup: ‘It’s mysterious, it’s quite gothic and dark, like Gareth, so I think it was a good collaboration.’ 

    Watch the interview now and don’t forget to revisit Garland in conversation with Terry Barber and SHOWstudio editor Lou Stoppard to hear the trio discuss Alexander McQueen show makeup as part of the 'V&A Connects' series.

    The British supermodel sat down with Nick Knight to candidly discuss the image’s nudity (‘I was like oh shit, I’m naked in Ibiza, people are beeping their horns- it was just such a spectacle’), the perils of over-production- ‘You can’t take away spontaneity from a photograph’- and the excitement of posing for Mert & Marcus: ‘As a model, sometimes knowing less is best- you’re thrown into it and it’s like an instinctual reaction happens.’
