    'Deer Robbie' by Willy Vanderperre

    For me, the very best of the Moving Fashion shorts are ones where the style or aesthetic of a photographer whose stills you love seemingly 'comes to life'. Opening up each new 30 second short holds the same mixture of anticipation, slight dread and wonderment as experienced prior to a blind date or meeting someone you've previously admired: what if they let you down?

    Thank the Lord, then, that Willy Vanderperre, a photographer I have longed to have on SHOWstudio for ages, stays true to form. These thirty-eight seconds depicting a 'living centrefold' of Raf Simons' right-hand-muse Robbie remain extremely close to the meticulous, classical stills we most associate with Vanderperre. Concentrating on the narrow distance between definitive still and 'time-based portrait', everything is left to nuance.

    Server Wobbles

    Due to a huge amount of interest in our site of late the server just buckled under the load - though I've bought it back now.

    I'm doing my best to keep it under control, but to all your regulars : please bear with us.

    Between the Bandshell and the Sheep Meadow.

    Central Park on a spring day. An inviting graphic catwalk that is assume vivid astro focus' skate park intervention. The graphic might outshine some of the fashion in motion here, but the energetic flow isn't diminished.

    Pre-shoot tea party

    Nick Knight and team have arrived at SHOWstudio to shoot the final section of the film footage that will form the second half of the MOVING FASHION project. For this, we will be offering a full hour of extraordinary, exclusive fashion rushes for you to edit into your very own film. Now, don't say we don't spoil you!

    For this last part, Nick is just about to film Gemma in a recreation of/response to her outfit and persona from the controversial John Galliano Spring/Summer '06 show. The mirrored hallway designed by Paul Hetherington (that most of you will recognise from the SHOWstudio webcam imagery) is being used as a setting. Dorian's currently working on a live stream so that you don't miss out on tonight's action.

    First things first, though. Gemma's taking tea with stylist Jonathan Kaye, make-up artist Macky and nails technician Marian Newman whilst Nick, Jez and Eisuke sort out the lighting with the Pauls. Quite right.

    Gemma Ward LIVE!; Update

    The first part of this evenings shoot (in the mirrored room with coloured lights and neon signs) is over, and we're onto the second part: Gemma dances whilst a film is projected over her.

    Those of you who experienced difficulty viewing the live stream may find this next, slightly less optically perplexing session a little more trouble free. The complexity of the infinite reflections in the mirrored room, means that the temperamental video streaming codec (bear with us) has too much information to process. Hence it will 'crash' from time to time.

    Gemma Ward LIVE!; Blink and you missed it

    In two 3 minute takes, gyrating to the sixties rock soundtrack of Velvet's film projected over her body, Gemma Ward completes this evenings entertainment almost before it began. You'll come to see more of Velvet and the film we made tonight, in the 'Viewer's Cut' stage of our Moving Fashion project.

    Movie clips will be posted in due course for those that missed tonight's live broadcast. The Viewer's Cut, is, as they say in the Movie Theatre... Coming Soon! Until then, eat your popcorn.

    'The Honeymoon Song'

    Today we play host a romantic thirty-second short by the Japanese photographer Hiromix, who is the first contributor in our MOVING FASHION series so far who has chosen not to add a soundtrack to the film. Clearly, Hiromix's actions speak louder than her words!

    It could be yours!

    It's the fashion equivalent to one of Charlie Bucket's golden tickets. A sort of 'sampler piece', featuring every one of the esteemed fashion house's stock materials and construction techniques, this bag (showcased at the Louis Vuitton press day at The Dorchester today) costs a staggering 10,000GBP. No small wonder then that only 6 will be made.

    'London Loves'

    Sometimes it's just a case of putting yourself in the way of potential content. Take today's short by fabulous young stylist Miss Francesca Burns. There she was, enjoying the entertainment at Selfish Cunt's halloween party, and suddenly Martin rips the dress off Beatrice, leaving her bare breasted and everything!!

    Now, that's what we call a 'moment of moving fashion'! Good job Fran's camera was opportunistically set to 'on'.
