Bring & Buy archive project relaunched

Patti Smith, Yoko Ono, Tilda Swinton and Björk - these were just some of the names that donated garments to SHOWstudio's Bring & Buy in July 2005. All pieces received were featured in a unique Nick Knight shoot for the October 2005 issue of i-D, starring the likes of Erin O’Connor, Naomi Campbell and Karolina Kurkova modelling unique fashions realised by an army of international stylists. The truly one-off clothes were then auctioned on eBay in aid of Oxfam - but our project profiles the entire process from receipt of the packages through to the shoot itself, captured on fashion film by Nick Knight and edited by Ruth Hogben.
