    Transformative: Sam McKnight for Chanel by Karl Lagerfeld

    Our Transformative project - a running series of interviews with stylists, make-up artists and hairdressers - continues as renowned hairstylist Sam McKnight shares his experience of working with Karl Lagerfeld on Chanel runway shows. 

    Comparing photo shoots with the chaos of the runway show McKnight explains ‘You kind of relinquish lots of control at the shows, because it’s not your environment, it’s someone else’s environment.’ He reveals he gets past the challenge of creating hair styles for up to a hundred models by using wigs and hairpieces, preparing them weeks in advance and working on each model right up to the moment they walk; ‘I’m right there at the very end… I need to be the last person who touches them, much to the dismay of the show producers.’

    Watch the interview now for McKnight’s perspective on Chanel, and peruse Transformative's sister project Subjective for the model’s point of view on some of the world's most famous fashion imagery.

    Subjective: Alek Wek on John Galliano

    This week's Subjective interview is with Sudanese supermodel Alek Wek who speaks to Nick Knight about walking for John Galliano.

    'I mean, talk about celebrating different beauty!' says Wek of Galliano's diverse casting. 'I never got to work with him and I said to my agent, 'Can I at least go see?' Before I even got on the train I got a call - 'You're booked!''

    Wek also discusses mentoring younger models, working with Pat McGrath and why the runway doesn't faze her; 'Thousands of girls want to do that show and we're getting paid to look gorgeous? I don't get nervous - unless I have dangerous shoes!'

    Watch the complete interview now and don't miss our chats with fellow Galliano muses Liberty Ross and Erin O'Connor.

    Fashion Film screening presents RCA fashion class 2015 work in progress
    Unique film by Maxim Kelly

    Fashion Film has long been a tool to present fashion students' work to a wider audience online and the RCA has been at the forefront of the genre for some time. For the past two years, the RCA fashion class used film to present their work; You can watch the MA 2013 film by SHOWstudio contributor Marlon Rueberg here or have a look at last year's MA offering with three separate fashion films as well as a discussion and live stream here

    This week the RCA presented the student work in progress show and the fashion class once more decided to use fashion film. Filmmaker Maxim Kelly was commissioned to create a three minute film including work by students across menswear and womenswear, as well as knitwear, millinery and accessories. Each student contributed one full look - or in case of accessories, one piece. The diversity of the students is reflected in the breadth of creative output. 

    Maxim Kelly's film captures this vast range of designs perfectly in his surreal and humorous filmic rendition which launched at the show's private view.

    The RCA Work In Progress show is on until January 25th so make sure to catch Kelly's fashion film and the students' work while you can!
