LOVERBOY Film Night #3 will be showing Lars von Trier’s 1998 film The Idiots: a Danish comedy centred around a group of young eccentrics who attack middle class thinking by pretending to be mentally handicapped.
The screening will be accompanied by a special performance from Kevin Joseph Bailor with set design by Jack Appleyard.
Sharna Osborne and Chloe Valentine have also created a one-off film to commemorate the night while Julie Greve shot the campaign.
Head on down to Vogue Fabrics tomorrow, Tuesday 17 November, at 20:00 for a night filled with surprises!

In order to open up and de-mystify the world of fashion and explore what happens prior to the final image appearing in a magazine, SHOWstudio pioneered the live streaming of photoshoots to allow its visitors to experience the happenings in real time and take a peak behind-the-scenes.
On Monday 16 and Tuesday 17 November, we will be live-streaming a Nick Knight editorial photoshoot for V Magazine, titled The Moon and the Cat's Eyes. Collaborating with Amanda Harlech, the magazine's Fashion Director and a long time friend, Knight shoots Molly Bair and Cierra Skye in an editorial inspired by the horror film 'A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night.'
The story draws upon previous research into witches and the fascination of the mystical. Rendered as a series of tableaus, the editorial will explore both the theatre of fashion and the emotional and physical dynamic between a sorceress and a streetwalker, portrayed by the model duo. The narrative will be aided by S/S 16 fashions, featuring Comme des Garçons, Chanel, Vetements, Saint Laurent, Celine, Tom Ford and Alexander McQueen.
Make sure you tune in and get immersed in Knight's world.
Joe Lally, the avant-garde filmmaker, has created a new fashion film titled 'Flowers of Evil.'
Mediating on the visual allure we seek in violence in the cinema, the film sees actors Dorian Gray and Jhanelle Castillo exploring an act of murder and its artistic representation. Styled by Matthew Ellenberger and soundtracked by UMUVOVA, 'Flowers of Evil' raises the inherent need society has for horror in the arts.
SHOWstudio is proud to announce that our director, Nick Knight, has been awarded the 2015 Isabella Blow Award for Fashion Creator at this year's British Fashion Awards.

Marc Blackie is a London-based artist utilising photography, film and animation to explore and portray erotic surrealism.
Challenging notions of sexuality and de-constructing the clichés of erotica, Blackie has created two films, starring Tessa Kuragi, which confront the viewer's boundaries of intimacy and the stereotypes of gender.
Titled 'Adoration' and 'Parfois, Mon Corps Me Trahit,' the films see Kuragi battling with her body, being manipulated and made subservient to Mackie behind the screen.
British designer Louise Alsop’s brand new collection has just landed in our SHOWstudio / MACHINE-A online store!
Inspired by abstract painter Ad Reinhardt and installation artist Tobias Buche, Alsop went back to black for A/W 15. Oversized sweatshirts are overlaid with punk photo patches and ‘Cry Later’ motifs are branded onto tees and lace-up trousers.
Keeping the collection’s colour scheme neutral, Alsop throws in a few stark white pieces ranging from ribbed tube tops to asymmetric knits.
Went to see Mykki Blanco and some of the other acts on his label DOGFOOD on Thursday.

SHOWstudio is launching a new project which explores the idea that the place you were born and grew up in influences your aesthetic and outlook.
Entitled 'North,' the project focuses on taste makers and fashion designers born in the North of England. In a series of discussions, the personalities open up about their youth accompanied by images of the places most significant to them, the street they grew up on, their fondest memories of their hometowns and how these affected their works today.
Our first instalment sees the stylist Simon Foxton comment 'the most northern part of me is my humour,' as he talks about growing up in a hotel, the importance of the sea and his ideas of masculinity, as well as the significance of a certain Miss Dickinson.
