    As the Autumn/Winter 2016 shows come to London, a new illustrator joins us at SHOWstudio to depict the key looks from the shows in her signature style.

    Gill Button, a Kingston graduate who captures the confidence her subjects gain through self-adornment while juxtaposing it with their vulnerability, will be posting her artworks re-interpreting the collections by the likes of Ryan Lo, Burberry, Alexander McQueen, J.W. Anderson, Ashish and more on our tumblr page throughout London Fashion Week.

    See her work here and revisit the vivid illustrations from New York Fashion Week by February James. All works will be available to buy shortly from our SHOWstudio/MACHINE-A online store.

    Björk stars in Nick Knight's AnOther Magazine editorial

    Nick Knight has photographed the otherworldly signer Björk for the fifteenth birthday issue of AnOther magazine. 

    To celebrate the influential publication's anniversary, a team including stylist Katy England and make-up doyen Peter Philips dressed the Icelandic princess in S/S 16 designs by the likes of House of Harlot, L’indefini-Liya Liu, Comme des Garçons, Ann Demeulemeester and Gareth Pugh, while veiled with intricately hand-made masks created by Phillips and embroidered by the legendary François Lesage. 

    The final photographs also served as an inspiration for the artist Unskilled Worker, who interpreted three of the looks in her signature style, all of which will be available to purchase from our SHOWstudio/MACHINE-A online store soon.

    Hooray for the Brits! Teatum Jones win the Woolmark prize

    Hooray for the Brits! Catherine Teatum and Rob Jones – you know them as Teatum Jones – were tonight announced as the winners of the womenswear final in this year’s International Woolmark Prize, the first designers from the UK to claim victory in the competition’s sixty three-year history. They join a roster of past winners that in 1954, a year after the award was established, included a certain Karl Lagerfeld for the coat category and a Mr Yves Saint Laurent for dress design. ‘We feel amazing,’ Jones said minutes after the announcement. ‘We worked for a long time on this fiber with Woolmark and this feels like the beginning as well. Now we can really run with our ideas.’

    That fiber? Scuba wool! ‘This whole collection has taken us four months,’ Teatum explained. ‘We started with the Guipure lace and bonded it to a fabric that we developed, a wool scuba. We started that process at the regional rounds and we just refined it and started to find out how to execute it in a much finer way.’ Teatum and Jones convinced a 130-year-old specialist Guipure lace mill in Northern France to create the innovative geometric Merino laces used in the collection, a first in the mill’s history. ‘They weren’t open initially,’ says Teatum. ‘What surprised me was the difference that you can make if you go to a mill and you meet somebody, shake hands with them and sit down and have a coffee. That can take you a really long way and it’s really important to meet these crafts people. They’ve been doing it for over a century so there’s a real respect that you need to pay them and once there’s a mutual understanding of what you’re trying to achieve, something beautiful and exquisite, they will work with you. For the two of us it always comes back to human stories. We love meeting people, they are what inspire our collections.’

    The human story at the heart of this collection is that of Agnes Moirragh Bernard, an English nun who moved to a post-famine era Ireland, envisioned a Wool Utopia and in 1892 founded the Foxford Woollen Mills, giving the people of Foxford a lasting legacy. Teatum Jones worked with the mill to create the blankets that inspired the collection. ‘My family are Irish and I was there last summer,’ Teatum explains. ‘My father just recommended I go to this mill and so I did. I found out her whole story and I fell in love with it and it was all about wool so it fit perfectly!’

    Branded is back! New essay by Nomzamo Majuqwana

    SHOWstudio explores branding and its history in fashion and art in our new series, Branded. Alongside two exclusive films by Bess NYC are essays and interviews that focus on what logomania means today.

    As part of our 'Branded' series, creative consultant, Nomzamo Majuqwana has written a new essay exploring the power that people have over logos and their symbolism. 'Whilst designers might be able to dictate how popular their labels are, they cannot control what their logos mean to the public. That’s people-made.' adds Majuqwana. 

    Check out the new essay 'People Power' and revisit the rest of the project while you're there.

    Gender and The North: A new essay by historian Helen Smith

    North is a project exploring the various ways the North of England has been portrayed and stereotyped in media and fashion, pondering whether the place where someone has grown up influences their aesthetic.
