Candybird's Jason Wu illustrations are now live!
Our A/W '13 illustrators first outing!

SHOWstudio continues to champion the role of illustration in contemporary fashion by recruiting the wonderful illustrator Candybird to draw the Autumn/Winter '13 New York shows.

The first designer on Candybird's schedule was Taiwanese-Candadian red carpet favourite, Jason Wu, who showed yesterday. Known for her digital mark-making, Candybird focused on splashes of colour and fabric movements, which were prevalent amongst Wu's designs. Simple, graphic lines, heightened with tonal variation, reflects the silhouette and material of the collection.

Keep an eye on our Tumblr account, as Candybird continues to illustrate throughout the season. Today she focuses on the Alexander Wang and Altuzarra collections.

    I would be interested in gnteitg any further information I can. My 84 year old mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's three years ago, although I believe she was in the early stages much earlier than this.I think it is an outrage that the Government is going to take Alzheimer's medication off the PBS. Mum was put on Aricept and for at least 2 and half of the three years since diagnosis she was okay. Then she started to go downhill more quickly and her doctor decided to take her off it. He did not think that it was working any more. She has gone a bit more downhill since she stopped it, and sometimes I wonder if this would have happened if she had not stopped the Aricept or had been put on another drug. I am going to discuss this with her doctor. However there are people out there who depend on this treatment and simply could not afford it if it was not on the PBS.What can we do to stop this? I thought we were supposed to live in a democracy .would they take people with other diseases off their PBS medication? I don't think so. It is only because Alzheimer's and the other dementias are not understood enough by ANYBODY who has nothing to do with these diseases. We have to build awareness of this hideous disease so something like this PBS decision is not made.
