    Transformative: Sam McKnight on Irving Penn

    Our Transformative project - a running series of interviews with stylists, makeup artists and hairdressers - continues as renowned hairstylist Sam McKnight shares his experiences of working with photographer Irving Penn.

    Recalling a couture shoot in Paris with eighties supermodel Katoucha, McKnight explains the process behind creating hairstyles for Penn: 'He was using a particular light where the hair looked great when it was a little bit spiky and a little bit see-through. He always liked something that was very graphic and that was kind of the look of the moment.' McKnight also talks about other collaborations with Penn, describing the iconic image-maker as 'very quiet, very polite, very mannered. Very charming, lovely, but confident, as you would expect. And very old-school, so there was no misbehaving, there was no singing and dancing, there was no music.'

    Watch the interview now and don't forget to peruse Transformative's sister project Subjective for the model's point of view on some of the world's most famous fashion imagery.

    Men In Motion: Dancer Daniel Proietto and Nick Knight collaborate on a film

    Inspired and moved after viewing Ivan Putrov's Men in Motion at the London Coliseum (a celebration of the male dancer that compresses 100 years of beguiling choreography for men into a concise 100 minutes), Nick Knight asked featured dancer Daniel Proietto to perform his Sinnerman routine, choreographed by Alan Lucien Øyen, on film. The re-staging is a celebration of the majesty of the male dancer - a sublime example of the possibilities of the body and the impact of the moving image.

    Duty Free Pour Homme - New Fragrance by Tigran Avetisyan

    SHOWstudio is proud to present Duty Free Pour Homme, a new fashion film from Tigran Avetisyan created to introduce the Russian designer's debut perfume. 

    Comprised of four different fragrances (by Chanel, Dior, Calvin Klein and Gucci) poured into one 3D bottle, the perfume was designed to accompany the S/S 15 collection. As Tigran explains, 'The point of the collection was never to sell perfume but through the perfume sell the S/S 15 collection. It might not make sense, but it's actually the reverse logic of what big brands are doing, who produce collections only to support sales of their best selling perfumes.'

    Watch the film now and browse the S/S 15 collection in our newly launched SHOWstudio Shop!

    Transformative: Val Garland on Tim Walker

    Transformative is back! Hand-in-hand with our Subjective series, which sees Nick Knight re-imagine fashion photography from the model's point of view, our Transformative project presents a history of contemporary fashion imagery from the perspective of those who work behind the scenes: makeup artists, stylists and hairdressers.

    This week's interview is with makeup artist Val Garland, who discusses working with Tim Walker on a shoot for W magazine. Garland describes the makeup for one particular model: 'This young boy was just so incredibly gorgeous, and Edward [Enninful] was going, 'Just do what you want to do!' I thought, he's wearing this beautiful yellow dress, let's just cover him in yellow glitter. It was something so simple.' She also recalls collaborations with Lee McQueenKate Moss and Katie Grand, and explains why her relationship with Walker is so strong; 'What I love about Tim is that he is a storyteller. Anything can happen so it's always a lot of fun.'

    A Re-see with Ryan Lo

    Our latest Re-see sees Ryan Lo reflect on his A/W 15 collection with SHOWstudio editor Lou Stoppard.

    The London-based designer explains how his most recent offering was a deliberate move away from his signature girlishness towards something more grown-up; 'There's no glitter. I just thought it was time to do something a bit more sophisticated, a bit more womanly. There's black - I never work with black!' Lo also talks about early reference points, feeling pigeonholed and collaborating with Gary Card and Robbie Spencer.

    Over years of researching her Icons and Muses project, Sofia Tchkonia has interviewed numerous influential figures of 20th and 21st century fashion and culture, including Pierre Berge, Rick Owens and Serge Lutens. She invited SHOWstudio to edit and release the footage as a series entitled Love, Money, God, a nod to the journalist's three key questions.

Lamy discusses studying to be an attorney, opening a factory in LA and meeting Rick Owens, who she is now wife and muse to; 'I think I had seen him in the street. His look before was not so different to now, a little more fierce... He was sticking out.' Aside from her career, Lamy also ponders wrinkles, humanity, and what keeps her going: 'Tea and cigarettes!'
