    Younji Ku reinterprets Nick Knight's archive footage of Kate Moss

    To celebrate the lasting influence of Kate Moss - undoubtedly one of the world's most photographed women - Nick Knight launched Editing Kate in 2010. This dynamic fashion film series sees SHOWstudio invite a selection of contemporary video editors to 'interpret' Kate Moss' iconic image, crafting their own fashion films from footage captured during Knight's editorial for the December 2010 issue of Vogue Italia. Just a few month's after the project launched, we released Jamie Harley's take on the footage, alongside an interview with the filmmaker about his approach. Today, 8 June, we're excited to revive the project with a beautiful new edit by SHOWstudio's own Younji Ku. The film, titled That's How Much I Loved Him, explores dark romance and unhealthy love. Watch it now for a new view of Kate.

    SHOWstudio in Georgia
    Be Next Int. Art and Fashion Festival

    After recent trips to Helsinki and San Sebastian, this week SHOWstudio visits Georgia at the crossroads of Western Asia and Eastern Europe. Invited to hold a lecture about fashion film at Tbilisi's beautiful Writer's House, Marie Schuller spoke about the development of fashion in motion, discussing films as early as Blumenfeld's and Bourdin's early experiments, Gareth Pugh and Ruth Hogben's famed collaborations and Nick Knight's most recent SHOWstudio film The Elegant Universe. The lecture also discussed the impact of advancing technology onto fashion imagery, as well as the artistic benefits of sharing the creative process with the audience. 

    Our one day stop-over in beautiful Tbilisi also took us to the famed academy of the arts in the city centre, which is a beautiful 140-year-old palace boasting opulent Persian interiors. Sadly, the stunning function rooms have not been used for lectures or events in 15 years as the building is in structural decline. The stunning reception room now serves as a storage place for students' work.

    Tomorrow awates a journey to the seaside town of Batumi where the yearly Be Next International Art and Fashion Festival takes place. Founded 9 years ago by Sofia Tchkonia, the event aims to create a cultural exchange between Georgian and International fashion designers and experts and is centred around a design contest, that will award various scholarships, financial and educational prizes.

    Iphigenia Gras’ Tumblr takeover ends June 7

    This month Iphigenia Gras joins the ranks of guest curators who have taken over SHOWstudio’s Tumblr. We're now midway through her week in the spotlight, which will end on 7 June. The last few days have seen her move through a series of insightful perspectives on what it is to be a woman. Gras’ often tender notions are tempered with fierce disavowal’s of common misconceptions of feminism. Her choice of imagery follows a theme of explicit sexuality, bondage and females in various stances of power. She strongly advocates, ‘maintaining dignity and confidence’ at all times but also encourages visitors to broaden their minds to what being a female and a feminist can mean.

    The guest curation times with the urgent #YesAllWomen campaign. Head to Tumblr this week - 1 to 7 June 14 - to see more!

    Erin O'Connor talks Richard Avedon
    Watch the latest Subjective interview

    Nick Knight continues to form a history of contemporary fashion photography from the point of view of models with Subjective. In this week's segment he speaks to Erin O'Connor about a Versace campaign shot by Richard Avedon. 

    O'Connor describes her impressions of the legendary photographer, both as an artist and as a man. 'In real life he was sort of like a playful naughty little boy. He must have been in his seventies when i first met him and I developed a huge crush on him,' she confesses. Delve into the interview to uncover a new side of the famous image, including O'Connor's memories of the process of working with 10 by 8, the references Avedon compared her to and his fixation with her nose -  'I've been following that nose of yours all season,' he reportedly said to her on their second meeting. 

    Check out Subjective now for this and other interviews in the series.

    Ugly: Ana Kinsella on the uncanny
    Read the new essay now!

    Our Ugly project continues with a new essay by fashion writer and junior editor at Bon magazine Ana Kinsella. Exploring the idea of the uncanny - 'that strange feeling that arises when we encounter something that is both familiar and unfamiliar at once' - Kinsella investigates the work of designers such as Christopher Kane and J.W Anderson, unpicking their use of misleading, 'look-again' textures and constructions. 

    'Pure ugliness is difficult to pin down, harder for us to form a general consensus on, but the uncanny is a little more universal, perhaps because at a fundamental level, it works by simple juxtaposition. While ugliness can involve issues of taste and opinion and morals, the uncanny hits us on a gut level.' she explains.

    Delve into the 'allure of the off-kilter' and read Kinsella's essay now!
