Today is something of an open house at SHOWstudio as we are holding our first-ever press day, to mark the opening of the SHOWstudio SHOP. Our doors opened at 9.30am this morning, with some sterling help from Michael Howells and Shona Heath who helped install their own fabulous creations in our studio space. Michael Howells brought along a selection of the incredible papier maché heads created for John Galliano's A/W 2007 couture show marking Dior's 60th anniversary, and Shona Heath reworked a floral installation originally commissioned for British Vogue especially for display within the SHOWstudio space.
Throughout the day we've seen a stream of visitors from every corner of the fashion world, including master milliner Stephen Jones, Peter Jensen (who celebrates his own tenth anniversary this year) and Fashion East's Lulu Kennedy - alongside visits from journalists from The Independent, LOVE, 10 Magazine, Dazed & Confused and Vogue, to name but few! Here are a few shots captured earlier today (before madness descended!) but for further information all the items featured in the SHOWstudio SHOP are available through our newly-launched e-commerce site.
