    Our new 'North' project has launched

    SHOWstudio is launching a new project which explores the idea that the place you were born and grew up in influences your aesthetic and outlook. 

    Entitled 'North,' the project focuses on taste makers and fashion designers born in the North of England. In a series of discussions, the personalities open up about their youth accompanied by images of the places most significant to them, the street they grew up on, their fondest memories of their hometowns and how these affected their works today. 

    Our first instalment sees the stylist Simon Foxton comment 'the most northern part of me is my humour,' as he talks about growing up in a hotel, the importance of the sea and his ideas of masculinity, as well as the significance of a certain Miss Dickinson.

    Revisit our 'A Beautiful Darkness' Halloween experience

    For Halloween 2015, Veuve Clicquot partnered with Nick Knight and SHOWstudio on the first installment of The Widow Series

    Knight commissioned designers, illustrators and performance artists to create bespoke work revolving around the theme, A Beautiful Darkness. The event, held on 28 October 2015 in the former Central Saint Martins building, came alive with creative energy from the many guests and contributors including Gareth Pugh, Scott Campbell and Lady Amanda Harlech

    In keeping with SHOWstudio’s inclusive nature, Knight asked fellow fashion filmmakers - both established and upcoming - to create a series of horror fashion films. The five works are now available to view. Jeff Vash traced the search for sin and pleasure in a film inspired by Dutch artist, Hieronymus Bosch, while Rei Nadal and Ellie Grace Cumming reflected our childhood fears in a classic horror short. Long-time SHOWstudio collaborator, Ruth Hogben, worked with designer Gareth Pugh to create a film exploring the internal conflict that is chaos versus control. Knight also responded to his own brief with the help of stylist Charlotte Stockdale, referencing cult horrors and snippets of folklore on the bodies of Ruth Bell, Binx Walton and more. 

    Knight also continued his commitment to fashion illustration by asking 22 artists to depict key S/S 16 looks as chosen by Ellie Grace Cumming. View the exclusive macabre artworks from the likes of Unskilled Worker, Ozabu and Laura Laine in our illustration gallery. Each illustration is available to purchase in our online shop.   

    The entire list of creatives and their corresponding work can also be viewed. See how guests were greeted by Thom Browne-clad mourners and take a look at Gareth Pugh’s clown-like creations. Get an inside look at the Cinema Room and Veuve Clicquot Tasting Room as well as spaces designed by the likes of Amanda Harlech, Claire Barrow and taxidermist Rose Robson.

    Don’t miss the chance to see all the imagery from the night including IMMA/MESS’ liberating performance, Russian clairvoyant Pavel’s psychic readings and Craig K. Talbot’s chilling reading of Edgar Allen Poe.

    Milk Jagger

    I'm excited to announce that my first show and artist zine, Milk Jagger has opened this week at the Doomed Gallery.
    Milk Jagger is a zine based on the fantasy character created by Viet Cong drummer Michael B. Wallace. Milk Jagger is a corrupt LA cop. Both alluring and repulsive, he can and will abuse his power. Inspired equally by the action film 'Lethal Weapon' and A.A. Bronson’s 'Queer Zines.'
    Milk Jagger is a vision of eighties American male machismo warped into a hazy queer fantasy.

    His multidisciplinary, multi-media approach is Rubchinskiy's way of building his own world and ideology. He designs his collections, photographs them, casts models, produces his lookbooks and seasonal fanzines, as well as producing films and albums. He has recently published a book titled 'Youth Hotel.'

    Watch Melissa Tofton S/S 16 fashion film 'Leather'

    The designer Melissa Tofton cut her teeth at Middlesex University, Savile Row's Henry Rose and at a specialist leather bondage store in Berlin. Influenced by these experiences, her clothing fuses bondage with tailoring and craftsanship.
