Belgium publication, A Magazine Curated By, has recruited acclaimed milliner and SHOWstudio friend Stephen Jones as their latest guest host! The magazine gives international designers, groups or fashion houses the opportunity to personalise content that expresses their aesthetic and cultural values.
For this issue, Jones has championed the art of fashion illustration, chosing illustrative friends to work alongside him to create a magazine devoid of photography. 'I chose illustrators that could all draw Venus in the sand before breakfast, probably with their eyes closed and standing on one leg.'
SHOWstudio's exclusive project Finger Painting is also featured. Nail technician Marian Newman attached the world's first quill nails to textile designer and friend of Jones, Celia Birtwell, allowing her to produce beautiful illustrations direct from her fingertips.
Also amongst the pages are dreamy still life roses from Nick Knight and an array of breath-taking illustrations and artworks.
