    Joseph Lally's Soap Opera: The final episode!

    For the past months Joseph Lally has entertained and shocked us in equal measure with his Soap Opera series, taking fashion film to an extreme with his exploration of taboos from suicide to sexuality and fascism. Today we launch the finale, aptly entitled Money Shot.

    Lally's final episode takes tounge-in-cheek inspiration from the conventions of pornography, euphemistically censoring the sexual imagery with visual puns of dollar bills and fireworks. In his own words 'The money shot is that which arrests the eyes and seduces the senses.' Enjoy the filmmaker's farewell to Soap Opera, complete with his signature use of black and white and beautiful boys.

    The more visible they make me...
    The latest from Nick Knight's archive

    'I like obsessiveness.' So begins Nick Knight explanation of the latest set of images in his month-long Kate Moss Tumblr curation. Counting down to the release of the second fashion film he ever made, the photographer is posting gifs from the same shoot, his first with the model, all the way back in 1995!

    The work is entitled The more visible they make me, the more invisible I become and features a 20 year old Kate Moss. It was shot on a security camera at a time when surveillance culture was just beginning and a topic of controversy. The medium and its subject combine to make a powerful statement about celebrity, voyerism and the fashion photographer. 

    Follow the curation, and stay tuned for the fashion film!

    Enter The Elegant Universe now!

    Earlier this year, Nick Knight embarked on a live fashion shoot with the help of couture doyenne Lady Amanda Harlech who styled incredible S/S 14 haute couture pieces from the likes of Chanel, Valentino and Margiela, on model and physics scholar Alexia Wight

    The trio sought to create a mathematical universe out of each piece, resulting in a stunning, delicate fashion film, created with the help of SHOWstudio video editor Younji Ku. Ku combined 3D scans of each look with the editorial work - which will appear in print in V magazinealongside audio of Wight discussing the intricacies of physics.

    The project was about exploring different dimensions,' Knight explains. 'I wanted to juxtapose what I, the photographer saw, against what the computer saw. When I look at the couture I see certain things that are useful or beautiful to me, just like when the computer captures the couture it also sees something that's useful to it, but that view is totally different.'

    Explore The Elegant Universe now and be sure to delve into the process by re-visiting un-cut footage from the two day shoot!

    Sarah Burton, Steven Klein and Vivienne Westwood support Russia's LGBTI community

    This year, London Fashion Week timed with the Winter Olympics held in Sochi, Russia. SHOWstudio and long-time collaborator Gareth Pugh teamed up with Amnesty international in their fight against the prejudice and violence directed towards the Russian LGBTI community.

    We asked members of the fashion industry and creative community - designers, artists, stylists, models, writers, singers, actors, filmmakers and editors - to show their opposition to the intolerance by taking part in individual 'protest films' that, together as a series, form one united voice - an overwhelming voice that says, 'Love is a human right.'

    While the games are over, we have continued to recruit more and more people to join the protest. The latest additions to the project include huge names such as Sarah Burton, Andreas Kronthaler, Marios Schwab, Steven Klein and Vivienne Westwood. We are honoured and thrilled that such acclaimed, busy creatives have given their time to support the cause.

    Keep following the protest.

    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!
