    Tumblr take-over: Christina Cacouris is curating our Tumblr

    In keeping with our tradition of handing the reins of SHOWstudio's Tumblr over to a different contributor for the first week of every month, journalist Christina Cacouris will be curating our Tumblr for the next week.

    Cacouris' curation, 'The Transatlantic Avant-Garde', will focus on the establishment of the Surrealist movement and the artists who shuttled back and forth between Paris and New York, whose works paved the way for modern fashion photography and general recognition of photography as an art.

    Each day will centre around an artist or pair of artists, and will also show how Surrealism trafficked between the art world and fashion.

    Head to our Tumblr to explore Cacouris' homage to the artists who inspired Nick Knight.

    Björk's Alexander McQueen 'Kimono' dress is up for auction

    Björk's Alexander McQueen 'Kimono' dress worn for the album cover of 'Homogenic', 1997, shot by our very own Nick Knight,  is up for auction as part of Kerry Taylor Auction’s ‘Passion for Fashion’ collective. 

    Björk had seen and liked Knight's image of Devon Aoki in Visionaire magazine and wanted an equally powerful, other-worldly look for her album cover, explaining that she wished to be depicted as a warrior - a warrior who fought not with weapons, but with love: 'I had ten kilos of hair on my head, special contact lenses, a manicure that prevented me from eating with my fingers, and gaffer tape around my waist and high clogs so I couldn't walk easily', she said of the fashion shoot. 

    Fan of McQueen? Revisit our Unseen McQueen series to revisit a series of candid interviews or why not revisit Visionaire to watch the editorial that inspired Bjork's album cover take shape.
