A new instalment of 'Love, Money, God' is launching today.
The series sees the journalist Sofia Tchkonia interviewing influential figures of the twentieth and twenty-first century fashion and culture, a source for an ongoing research for her 'Icons and Muses' project. As an exclusive for SHOWstudio, Tchkonia allowed our team to edit the uncut footage and release it on our site.
In the fourth interview, the journalist asks the Jordanian designer, Rad Hourani about his relationships, religion and business, the three main themes of the project. In this intimate discussion, Hourani looks back at his life and career, reminiscing about his journey to fashion and reconciling the gender, age and culture distinctions in his all-encompassing, unisex designs. He says of his ethos: 'there's no limit to what you can do to this garment. You just have to have your own style and imagination.'

The first issue of Ruins magazine has arrived.
Ruins is a magazine created by Christos Petritzis in an effort to produce a publication for the now rather than being nostalgic about the past, for a post-market euphoria generation.
Entitled 'Growth Euphoria Crisis,' the first issue focuses on fashion visuals mixed with political essays and writings on culture. Made between London and Athens, Ruins provides a unique, international take on fashion and how it is influenced by, as well as how it influences the wider society.
SHOWstudio is launching an exclusive film in conjunction with the launch of the first issue of Ruins, a teaser showcasing the magazine. The film is filmed and narrated by Christos Petritzis and soundtracked by Uli-K.
'Print' is a series challenging the notion that print is dead, reviving discontinued fashion magazines which have had a siginificant influence on the industry today.
In the new instalment, Lou Stoppard interviews Harriet Quick about Frank, an outspoken and strong magazine about the modern woman. Doing away with the traditional style and topics of women's magazines, Frank featured pieces about the best lipstick next to political articles, writings about female sexuality and car reviews.
Quick talks about the hardships and mixed receptions of publishing such a provocative magazine in the late nineties, the state of the industry at the time, as well as working with contributors ranging from Caitlin Moran to Sølve Sundsbø and Frances Howell, George Osborne's wife.
Read the interview and flick through the magazine for yourself, and check out the rest of the series featuring Paul Gorman's archive, Scott King's Sleazenation and Bay Garnett's Cheap Date.

The next instalment in the series is an essay by Durham University history professor, Adrian Green. Entitled 'The North Country in History,' Green discovers the origins of the North and South divide and explains why these ideas have remained pertinent today.
Green stresses the significance of regional accents, forms of dress and distinct cultural practices in creating the distinct divide between the North and South today.
