    Be patient! We're launching the Nike panel discussion footage this week

    Yesterday, 9 November we spent an inspiring day at the NikeLab in Shoreditch, as our own Lou Stoppard chaired a conversation on women, sport and fashion. Other panelists included tennis star Maria Sharapova, famous for her customised Nike looks on the court, and designer Pedro Lourenco, whose collection for the sports brand was released last month.

    The group discussed innovation in sportswear and the fusion of sport and fashion: 'Sport has such an amazing aesthetic, it's not surprising fashion is influenced by it,' declared Lourenco. Sharapova spoke about her earliest memories of discovering fashion upon moving to America from Russia aged 7, and her love for combining form with function in her on court wardrobe: 'It's so powerful to be good at what you do and to wear something that makes you want to do it better.'

    You wont have long to wait to watch the panel, we'll be releasing the footage this Wednesday, 12 November. In the meantime watch more from our In Conversation series featuring the likes of Suzy Menkes, Alber Elbaz and Yohji Yamamoto.

    Girly: a new essay by Lou Stoppard

    The Girly project continues! Read our latest essay from SHOWstudio editor Lou Stoppard as she laments the rise of the 'Basic Bitches.'

    Examining the current trend for hyper-youthful, hyper-feminine fashion, Stoppard muses why women want to be girls, arguing that it 'actually has very little to do with women’s rights, it's all about age, education and economy.' Citing designers like Jeremy Scott and style icons like Cher Horowitz, Stoppard posits that 'young women have no idea who [their] role models are'; 'our generation has been forced into a time warp, cruelly prevented from ever growing up like some sad passive aggressive female Peter Pan in American Apparel disco pants.'

    Read the full essay now and don't forget to explore the rest of the Girly project, including Nick Knight and Rei Nadal's Girl fashion film!

    1914 Now: Films and Essays

    SHOWstudio is proud to present 1914 Now, a film installation and collaboration between fashion curators and filmmakers.

    Inspired by Rem Koolhaas's brief to the national pavilions in the Giardini of the Venice Architectural Biennale, Absorbing Modernity 1914 to 2014, the project was realised when London College of Fashion's Alison Moloney invited four curators  - Walter Van Beirendonck, Amy de la Haye, Judith Clark and Kaat Debo -  to express a moment in fashion or dress from 1914 through the medium of film.

    The curators have collaborated with filmmakers including Bart Hess, James Norton, Katerina Athanasopoulou and Marie Schuller, simultaneously revealing multiple perspectives on one year of fashion and on fashion curation, with each curator displaying their distinctive approach towards their discipline and highlighting the interplay between static object and moving image.

    Alongside the four films are essays from the curators and responses from architectural historians and practitioners and critics, which explore how moments of modernity in fashion collide with those from other disciplines.

    Explore the in-depth project and browse the 1914 Now catalogue, available for purchase at SHOWstudio Shop!

    Liberty Ross on Ozzy Osbourne and Bob Carlos Clarke

    Subjective continues! In the latest episode of our rolling series reconsidering fashion photography from the models' side of the camera, Nick Knight speaks to Liberty Ross about appearing on Ozzy Osbourne's No Rest for the Wicked album cover when she was just nine years old.

    Ross recalls arriving at the shoot with her mother 'and just being so confused'; 'I was like 'what is happening?!' I didn't really know much about Ozzy, apart from he was a rock star.' She also discusses collaborating with photographer Bob Carlos Clarke on the project and explains her early entry into modelling; 'Weirdly I'm really shy so I don't know why or how I ended up doing this job. It was just part of who I am.'

    New to Girly: Morna Laing unpicks Meadham Kirchhoff!

    The latest addition to our Girly project is an essay on Meadham Kirchhoff’s S/S 12 collection, A Wolf in Lamb’s Clothing, penned by the London College of Fashion’s Morna Laing! 

    Recognising that the representation of the ‘woman-child’ in fashion often serves as a signifier or symbol for the times we live in, Laing considers the roles of the London label's famed S/S 12 collection’s ‘pastel-clad Courtney-Love-alikes’ and ‘pirouetting girl-child ballerinas.' She argues that Meadham Kirchhoff’s re-appropriation of the kinderwhore aesthetic amounts to a cunning political message and that the collection ‘can be understood as an instance of same-sex drag: exaggerating the contradictory demands of ideal femininity; betraying its constructed-ness; subverting it from within.’

    Read her essay in full and be sure to revisit past essays and interviews in the Girly series. The project includes a fashion film by Nick Knight and Rei Nadal which features key Meadham Kirchhoff pieces.
