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.
Styled by Harlech, with hair by Sam McKnight, make-up by Isamaya Ffrench and nails by Ami Streets, the shoot will feature heavy machinery and strong industrial lighting, mimicking a street lamp.
Make sure you tune in and get immersed in Knight's world.
