    Simon Costin's Museum of British Folklore
    A Case for Support

    This week, SHOWstudio hosted a very special event in support of Simon Costin's Museum of British Folklore. Costin is a long term SHOWstudio collaborator and world renowned art director whose fascination with folk traditions has lead him to embark on the mission of preserving and cultivating them. At present, there is no museum dedicated to British folklore in the UK, and within an increasingly globalised and digitised world, Costin feels that it is ever more urgent to engage with and educate in these particular heritages. For the past 2 years, he has been touring the country in a specially customised caravan staging events and exhibitions that celebrate various folk customs, but now is ready to set down firm roots for this very important project. Architect Adam Richards has designed a wonderful and environmentally friendly building that could house the museum. Set amongst a grove of trees, it has been conceived as a cluster of interlinked buildings that embrace the shapes and patterns associated with the seasons. The museum's programme will engage directly with its content and encourage the people and communities involved with these traditions to shape and mould its development, switching the conventional museum model on its head.

    The project now needs an influx of funding to realise this next step and is now seeking support. On Wednesday night, guests were invited to pledge to the cause, and now you can too by becoming a friend of the museum through the website. This is a wonderful cause and a unique opportunity to help initiate the preservation and investigation of these important traditions and customs.

    Alex Bilmes and Jefferson Hack's interviews are up on-demand now!

    You can now watch our two most recent In Fashion interviews on-demand. Last week Lou Stoppard interviewed two giants in the world of publishing, Esquire editor Alex Bilmes and founder of Dazed & Confused and AnOther Magazine Jefferson Hack

    Stoppard put both men through their paces, bringing up some challenging topics, which for Alex Bilmes includes 'ornament-gate' - Bilmes infamously once declared, 'the women in our magazine are ornamental' - and Esquire's attitude to women. 'We interview a lot of famous women and I feel Esquire takes them more seriously than anyone else does,' he declared.

    Hack's conversation centred around ideas of creative community and collaboration, including his memories of workng with Lee McQueen. 'It was apparent from the moment I met him that he was an absolute fucking genius. That's rare,' he said.

    Re-live the interviews with our on-demand footage, available for a limited time only!

    Sibling and Olivier Zahm interviews are up on-demand now!

    Two of last week's fascinating In Fashion interviews are now available to watch on-demand! Lou Stoppard sat down first with Joe Bates, Sid Bryan and Cozette McCreery of Sibling, who covered everything from their process of working together to run Sibling - 'If two are on the floor crying there's always one left standing who can take the helm!' - to their experiences early on in their individual careers. 

    The second interview with Olivier Zahm took an equally sincere direction, with the Purple founder touching on seventies pornography as an early creative influence and discussing the sexual nature of his photographs - 'Maybe the nudity in Purple is more shocking because we don't protect ourselves with artificial fashion imagery'.

    Catch up on the interviews and stay tuned for uncut footage of chats with Jefferson Hack and Alex Bilmes!

    SHOWstudio Shop hosted the private view of our new William S. Burroughs exhibition last night, which was attended by the likes of models Alek Wek and Alexia Wight as well as artists Robert Hawkins and Paul Fryer. The show features widely unseen photographs of the writer by Kate Simon taken between 1975 and 1995. In this show, Simon’s portraits capture the familiar image of Burroughs with his glasses perched on his hollow cheeks, his suit, his trilby hat and often a gun in tow, while also revealing the many facets of the man.

    The show is now open to the public at SHOWstudio Shop, 19 Motcomb Street, London from Monday to Friday, 11:00 to 18:00. It runs until 9 May 2014.

    Design Download: Giles - a new fashion film!

    Here at SHOWstudio we thrive on collaboration, and one of our favourite projects we love to see you get involved with is our Design Download series! In December 2012, Giles generously offered up an exclusive pattern from his A/W 07 collection and crafty individuals from accross the world got involved and interpreted the dress into their own colours, textures and styles! 

    Nick Knight and Giles himself picked their favourite creation. The winner was Leanne Broadway, a latex specialist who put a brilliant, futuristic and sleek twist on the pattern. In her own words, she wanted, 'to create a garment that translated the observers experience to the physicality of the wearer; it needs to feel as powerful to wear as the original looked.'

    As we continue to champion fashion film, we rewarded Broadway's creative flair with a fashion film, featuring her garment and shot by our very own head of fashion film Marie Schuller in a suitably futuristic setting!

    Watch the film now, and be sure to enter our most recent Design Download competition which is a covetable two piece look from the one and only J.W. Anderson!
