    It's Fashion Revolution Day! Catch up with our sustainability panel on demand.

    Last week SHOWstudio and Somerset House teamed up to bring you a live discussion panel on the topic of sustainable fashion. The panel featured a plethora of ethical fashion experts, including Dilys Williams and Renee Cuoco from Centre for Sustainable Fashion, The North Circular's Katherine Poulton, jeweler Michelle Lowe-Holder and Abigail Murray of Designer Jumble and was chaired by our own Lou Stoppard. In honour of today's Fashion Revolution cause, the panel discussed the issues around sustainable fashion, from production to consumption, in an inspiring and passionate debate. 'Fashion is political. Every time we get dressed we are making a political expression of our place in this world' Dilys Williams emphasized.

    This is the first Fashion Revolution Day to be celebrated, in recognition of the collapse of the Rana Plaza factory complex.

    'On 24th April last year, 1133 people were killed and over 2500 were injured when the Rana Plaza factory complex collapsed in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Social and environmental catastrophes in our fashion supply chains continue. Fashion Revolution Day says enough is enough.'

    Get involved, and find out more about the issues with the on demand footage from the panel!

    Joseph Lally's Soap Opera continues with Episode #10
    Watch 'Objectification of a Male Model' now!

    Joseph Lally takes us into the bittersweet territory of obsession with the tenth episode of his rolling Soap Opera series, in a fetishistic film unambiguously titled Objectification of a Male Model.

    Veering from romantic soft focus to invasive exploration, Lally's ode to male beauty and his investigation of the subject as object of desire steers the viewer from fascination to discomfort. This eerie feeling is helped by the filmaker's use of emotive classical music, as well as his choice of actor, emerging male model Dakota Taylor, an unknown face that immediately feels familiar thanks to the forced intimacy of Lally's filmic style.

    Watch Episode#10: Objectification of a Male Model now for this week's dose of Lally's signature sensual short films.

    Kate Simon talks William, his gun and his front porch

    Our Photographing William S. Burroughs soundbite series continues with Kate Simon discussing two portraits from a session on the notorious writer's front porch. In both photographs Burroughs poses with guns, a motif that has come to be strongly associated with the man and the myths surrounding him. Simon revisited the story behind the shoot;

    'There's a story in this because he art-directed the whole shot. He pulled that 'burr rose' head stone from the foyer of his house and said 'well how do you like that?' Then he pulled out his rifle and I thought 'now this is a good shot'.' 

    The photographer also recalls other details of her visit to Burrough's home in Lawrence, Kansas, including photographing him throwing knives against a tree out in the garden. Listen to the interview now!
