    Our Isabella Blow series continues with Bryan Ferry!

    The great Bryan Ferry visited SHOWstudio today with his sons Isaac and Tara, not only to be photographed by Nick Knight - which with our new 24/7 live studio webcam viewers could catch a sneak peak of - but also to be interviewed by Lou Stoppard

    Our Isabella Blow project has been quite a journey; from essays touching on issues surrounding the late icon to the beautiful film shot by Ruth Hogben at Doddington Hall. Ferry kindly provided one of his Roxy Music tunes as a soundtrack to the film, When She Walks In The Room - Blow's favourite song. One of the most insightful elements of our series has been the moving interviews with Issy's close friends and family, as part of which we are delighted to announce Ferry will be contributing to. 

    'I loved her high spirits and I loved her laugh - she had a very dirty laugh.' - Ferry reminices on his fond freindship with Blow, from introudicing her to Anna Wintour to his experience at the recent exhibition. 

    Stay tuned for the full interview up on SHOWstudio soon, in the meantime - why not re-visit some of the previous interviews with the likes of Philip Treacy and Daphne Guinness.

    Charlie Le Mindu's punk playlist

    'Well, punk is not dead - it's still here but in more clever way.' As part of our continuing Punk series, Charlie Le Mindu shares a very special playlist to sit within our Fashion Mix page. 

    The hairstylist and designer compiled together fourteen songs, each with punk in mind, however not necessarily the punk you would expect. Le Mindu gave us a little insight into his decisions, 'I chose a playlist of punk women. For me punk has never been a fashion since after [Vivienne] Westwood, since it was always a mood. Punk fashion does exist but in different ways of course; always provocative and choking. This playlist is, for me, a choice of women who are punk in real life not obviously in their music, 'Punk' is a style of music or fashion for some people but those people don't know the real punks.'

    Listen now to the powerful voices and tunes from female artists such as La Chatte, Edith Massey and Bikini Kill, who feature amongst others in this eclectic mix.

    Alistair O'Neill continues to unveil the memories Isabella Blow left behind

    The Isabella Blow: Fashion Galore! exhibition is now in full swing! The stunning tribute was curated by Alistair O'Neil who has been taking his curating further on SHOWstudio's Tumblr - as part of our own exploration into the late icon - with a rare, wonderful insight into Blow's world. 

    There is something undeniably remarkable about these glimpses of the great Blow; her personality and creativity is ever present in everything from a Givenchy reciept to an old school photograph. Hauntingly and delightfully, you can also listen to short clips of Issy speaking, her remarks on the Titian exhbition are a particular highlight. 

    These little things really help put together the bigger picture of how unique Blow was - on Friday O'Neils curation ends, so don't miss it.

    Terry Jones, a diamond geezer!

    Terry Jones, a diamond geezer!

    Back in the late 1970s and in direct response to Punk, Terry Jones, then the art director of British Vogue realised that the most exciting fashion was actually happening on the streets of London and not on the catwalk, bravely he resigned and started a magazine called i-D.

    Terry invested his time, his passion and his money into creating a magazine that reflected simply and clearly fashion at its most pure, the fashion of the street. In the late 1970s and early 1980s London streets were vibrant and bursting with fashions way more extreme, inspiring and audacious than anything in the mainstream of fashion. They were the catwalk of the world.

    Terry Jones saw this and through i-D allowed the rest of the world to see it too. A gesture so clever, insightful and altruistic which in many ways reflects Terry's whole attitude to life. His clear love and devotion to and of his wife Trish is also the love he expressed for all of us, making us all feel part of their family and is in part the reason they are loved back by so many people.

    In i-D they created a platform for a totally new generation of fashion image makers, designers, stylists, journalists and models, who they encouraged and championed. In so doing creating the one of the most important magazines ever.

    NB: Yesterday, The British Fashion Council gave Terry and Tricia Jones the Outstanding Achievement Award at the 2013 British Fashion Awards

    Morgan Fox returns!

    Morgan Fox contributed to SHOWstudio not so long ago; over the first week of November, Fox had us refreshing our feed on a daily basis as he curated our Tumblr with his fleetingly hilarious, perfectly disgusting diary of a young boy in love. Now, Fox is back! 

    We are now proud to showcase Composition 4, a film by Fox. This piece offers a glimpse into the sordid, lonely daily routine of one anonymous man. In Fox's words, the project looks at ''empty' spaces in a public library and some of the things that happen in those spaces.'

    Become absorbed in Fox's world, again!

    A new punk film: God Should Have Saved Diana

    Leo Frango, also known as Ejakulation in the world of Tumblr, has contributed to our Punk film series with a new work, God Should Have Saved Diana

    Frango explains, 'The inspiration behind the film was to show the decay of the world around us in a glimpse and to use Diana as an idea, a symbol of hope.' The end result is an anonymous, figure dressed in black who moves mesmerisingly against an influx of imagery, from swastikas to Westwood. While punk might have peaked over thirty years ago, Frango gives punk its ressonance in today's generation, subtly, by recognisably filming his piece on a MacBook's photo booth application. 

    Watch the film now!

    Isabella Blow - a trail of memories on our Tumblr

    'When I take something on I am eccentric in the sense I really want to succeed for you and for me because I've spent twenty-four years on my image.' You can listen to Isabella Blow come out with some truly intriguing, perfectly crude comments on our Tumblr this week. 

    Alistair O'Neill acted as curator for the fantastic Somerset House exhibition, Isabella Blow: Fashion Galore! As part of our continuing project exploring the late Blow, O'Neill is curating our Tumblr with some candid treasures - from letterhead memos to rare audio bites - he has uncovered from the late icon. 

    'I vividly remember coming across a mouth of red, applied to the corner of an envelope that made me realise that Isabella impressed her very palpable sense of self into those things she used to communicate with,' he discloses. 

    Delve into the rare trail of beautiful memories Blow left behind.
