    Blood Rose - a punk film by Amanda Harlech and Marie Schuller

    Our Punk project isn't over! We're delving back into the theme through the eyes of none other than Lady Amanda Harlech! Harlech teamed up with our head of fashion film Marie Schuller to capture her visions of punk...

    The piece, entitled Blood Rose plays with connotations of death, using a spot of blood seeping through fabric to create organicically abstract shapes, which are, at points, reminiscent of a rose.

    Harlech explains, 'The idea for the film began from pain as expression. That emotional truth has to be voiced. Punk for me was about being heard and understood. I began with an image of a baby chewing a razor blade and moved through a red rose blossoming as a heart with petals of blades. The blood became a flowering. The beauty of truth is that blossoming - the Blood Rose - to say what we mean.'

    Overall the piece is a serenely surreal two minutes, set off by a soundtrack from Leslie Winer. Watch now or purchase a framed fabric piece made during the filming process.

    Our William S. Burroughs interview series continues

    In tandem with our exhibition of portraits of William Burroughs, SHOWstudio has compiled a series of interviews with Kate Simon to shed some light on each of the photographs in the show. In the latest sound bite, Simon discusses a head shot of Burroughs from 1979. The image captures the writer standing in the front entrance of The Bunker, which Simon describes as a softbox where you could bounce light across and around the space. She gives specific details of the type of camera and lighting equipment she used at that time and shares some insights into the atmosphere of this quite surreal space. The interview touches upon Simon's experience and memory of the bunker space and is available to listen to now! Don't miss out!

    Simon Costin's Museum of British Folklore
    A Case for Support

    This week, SHOWstudio hosted a very special event in support of Simon Costin's Museum of British Folklore. Costin is a long term SHOWstudio collaborator and world renowned art director whose fascination with folk traditions has lead him to embark on the mission of preserving and cultivating them. At present, there is no museum dedicated to British folklore in the UK, and within an increasingly globalised and digitised world, Costin feels that it is ever more urgent to engage with and educate in these particular heritages. For the past 2 years, he has been touring the country in a specially customised caravan staging events and exhibitions that celebrate various folk customs, but now is ready to set down firm roots for this very important project. Architect Adam Richards has designed a wonderful and environmentally friendly building that could house the museum. Set amongst a grove of trees, it has been conceived as a cluster of interlinked buildings that embrace the shapes and patterns associated with the seasons. The museum's programme will engage directly with its content and encourage the people and communities involved with these traditions to shape and mould its development, switching the conventional museum model on its head.

    The project now needs an influx of funding to realise this next step and is now seeking support. On Wednesday night, guests were invited to pledge to the cause, and now you can too by becoming a friend of the museum through the website. This is a wonderful cause and a unique opportunity to help initiate the preservation and investigation of these important traditions and customs.

    Alex Bilmes and Jefferson Hack's interviews are up on-demand now!

    You can now watch our two most recent In Fashion interviews on-demand. Last week Lou Stoppard interviewed two giants in the world of publishing, Esquire editor Alex Bilmes and founder of Dazed & Confused and AnOther Magazine Jefferson Hack

    Stoppard put both men through their paces, bringing up some challenging topics, which for Alex Bilmes includes 'ornament-gate' - Bilmes infamously once declared, 'the women in our magazine are ornamental' - and Esquire's attitude to women. 'We interview a lot of famous women and I feel Esquire takes them more seriously than anyone else does,' he declared.

    Hack's conversation centred around ideas of creative community and collaboration, including his memories of workng with Lee McQueen. 'It was apparent from the moment I met him that he was an absolute fucking genius. That's rare,' he said.

    Re-live the interviews with our on-demand footage, available for a limited time only!

    Sibling and Olivier Zahm interviews are up on-demand now!

    Two of last week's fascinating In Fashion interviews are now available to watch on-demand! Lou Stoppard sat down first with Joe Bates, Sid Bryan and Cozette McCreery of Sibling, who covered everything from their process of working together to run Sibling - 'If two are on the floor crying there's always one left standing who can take the helm!' - to their experiences early on in their individual careers. 

    The second interview with Olivier Zahm took an equally sincere direction, with the Purple founder touching on seventies pornography as an early creative influence and discussing the sexual nature of his photographs - 'Maybe the nudity in Purple is more shocking because we don't protect ourselves with artificial fashion imagery'.

    Catch up on the interviews and stay tuned for uncut footage of chats with Jefferson Hack and Alex Bilmes!
