    Noritaka Tatehana LiveStudio marks opening of our SHOWcabinet exhibition

    To celebrate the launch of his SHOWcabinet exhibition this week, Noritaka Tatehana will take up residence at SHOWstudio on 9, 10 and 11 September 2014 to create a pair of his vertiginous heel-less shoes during a live broadcast. Revealing his process for the very first time, the shoemaker will give a step by step demonstration of the techniques used to create his gravity defying designs. Viewers of the stream can submit questions directly to Tatehana through SHOWstudio.com, so whether you want to know which university he went to, what he's inspired by or how he came to be the shoe designer of choice for Lady Gaga and Daphne Guinness, now is your chance to ask. When the shoes are complete, Nick Knight will shoot them on Daphne Guinness, a longterm champion of Tatehana, in a finale that marks the opening of the exhibition. The shoot will result in a series of editorial images and a fashion film that depicts Tatehana's latest creation.

    The live studio kicks off tomorrow, 9 September, from 14:00 - 18:00. Submit your question to Noritaka Tatehana now!

    Watch Nick Knight shoot live!

    We're streaming all the behind-the-scenes action of Nick Knight's latest photo shoot. Knight has teamed with Amanda Harlech to revive the bonnet, a now largely extinct piece of headwear with a rich and varied history. A selection of their favourite makers, including Alexander McQueen's Sarah Burton, Iris Van Herpen, Givenchy's Riccardo Tisci, Stephen Jones and J.W. Anderson, were approached to craft their own interpretation of a bonnet, with encouragement to ignore limitation and create freely. The bonnet can frame the face, capturing the gaze and serving as a funnel for beauty, or it can stand alone as an attractive object. It can give status or it can give anonymity. It can protect and shield the wearer or it can draw attention. These many roles will be celebrated in an editorial for V magazine and fashion film for SHOWstudio.

    The bonnets will be shot on a variety of models, through from children to adults, clad in a mixture of vintage clothes and pieces by Junya Watanabe. Watch live today, 7 September as we kick off the shoot. Our first model will be sporting a bonnet from Daphne Guinness' personal collection!

    You can also catch up on young designer Nasir Mazhar’s extremely candid interview, also conducted by Stoppard. Mazhar talks about the pressures he faces as a young designer, ‘There's no excuses. If you want to be a big designer you need to up your game.’ He also shares his views on fashion media, ‘There's a lot of stale things in this industry to be honest,’ - and the phrase ‘street wear’ -  'It's fashion. I think it's belittling to call it streetwear.’

    Liberty Ross on walking for Alexander Wang

    Continuing our Subjective series, Nick Knight spoke to Liberty Ross about walking the runway for Alexander Wang and why the catwalk makes her nervous.

    Ross recalled appearing in Wang's S/S 2013 show, and discusses the differences between walking for a designer and being photographed for a shoot, 'there's definitely an art to bringing who you are out on the runway'. She also describes the chaos backstage during show-season, including stuffing her shoes with paper and being burned on the nose with a hair-iron, 'its really a circus' she said.

    Other topics of conversation included the rise of fashion film and how actresses are treated with more respect than models, 'As a model you're really on your own… Often you're lucky if there's a robe!'

    Watch the exclusive interview now and stay tuned for more as the Subjective project continues!
