Our major retrospective exhibition SHOWstudio: Fashion Revolution will open at London’s Somerset House on 18 September this year, but in the meantime we are launching a new competition, based around our ever-expanding Design_Download series and giving our viewers a chance to showcase their own creations along side award winning work from SHOWstudio.
Until 1 August 2009, we are giving you the chance to create your own interpretation of a pattern courtesy of seven world-renowned fashion designers: John Galliano, Yohji Yamamoto, Alexander McQueen, Maison Martin Margiela, Junya Watanabe, Gareth Pugh, and Antony Price. All seven patterns are available to download exclusively from SHOWstudio. Judged by a panel of fashion experts including Nick Knight, Alistair O'Neil, Professor Penny Martin and Claire Catterall, the ten winning interpretations will feature in the exhibition at Somerset House. Runner-up entries will also be featured on SHOWstudio.com, so get your scissors and staflex ready!
