Future Couture - Shoot broadcasting live now!

Pre-shoot studio preparations

Birds of a feather: Antony Price's peacockery

Daphne Guinness' heel-less wonders, handcrafted by couture cobbler Massaro

The live stream of our latest shoot, Future Couture, has now begun! Over the next two days, Nick Knight will capture half-a-dozen of fashion's finest on film and through 3-D scanning, the results destined to grace the windows of Paris' Le Printemps department store come February. Nick Knight's model today is Daphne Guinness, an internationally renowned style icon and haute couture maven - and a perfect fit for a shoot inspired by a forward-thinking vision of fashion. Guinness is also styling herself for the shot, combining cutting-edge Spring/Summer 2012 creations with pieces selected from her own enviable haute couture archive. Philip Treacy has been on the phone to organise the headgear, Antony Price has sent a selection of feathers plucked from his own Yokohama hens and we've called in looks by the crème de la crème of twenty-first century fashion, including Rick Owens, Gareth Pugh, Junya Watanabe, Paco Rabanne and Maison Martin Margiela. And, of course, Daphne's wardrobe is second to none - I almost had a heart attack when she unfurled a few pairs of the Lesage-embroidered tights from Christian Lacroix's winter 2006 couture collection. I'm expecting many more flutters throughout the day. Our first outfit will be Paco Rabanne.
